This coming week we continue Learning Block 3; On the Move. We are having a great time making toys that we can move in different ways. We have learned about push/pull toys as well as toys that fly. We will next explore 'Jack in the box' jumping toys and Spinning toys. We will take part in crafts and learn to follow instructions step by step to make our own spinners & jack in a box. We will also have the opportunity to invent our own spinning toy using our imaginations and junk modeling skills. We will take part in some science as we enquire about springs and the types of toys that have a spring to help them move or bounce. 
Here is a video showing you a real jack in a box and how it springs up and gives you a fright! This is a traditional toy your Mum or Dad may have had when they were young. DO you have one at home? If you do bring it to school to show the class, we'd love to see!

Our Big Question this week is; "What kinds of toys have springs?"
Our learning this week will help us gradually be able to find answers to this big question.
