This coming week we begin Learning Block 3; On The Move. We will take part in alot of maths/science experiments as we enquire about push and pull toys (exploring forces). We will make tracks in the sand for the cars to experience having to push the cars up and down the hills and discover what requires more 'force'. We will have boats in the water that we have to move using our breath, we must experiment with blowing hard and softly to see which makes them move faster. We will make our own handmade game called 'worm in a box'. the children must practice pulling the string as they thread it carefully through the holes. This will help develop our fine motor skills/hand control. 
We will answer the big question 'How do toys move'. By enquiring using the toys in our toy show we will make a chart to record our results as we investigate how each toy moves when we play with it. 
We will need to use our personal quality Resilience this week as many of the toy challenges will be difficult and require alot of concentration and force to make them move!


Here is a story we will be singing/reading this week in class.
You can also watch/sing along to it at home.
