This coming week our learning will focus on the Big Question in Learning Block 3; Can you describe your favourite toy?

We will have a fun start to the week when the children will bring their personal favourite toy to school. We will have the opportunity to play with it, present it to the class as well as take part in comparing and guessing games. The games will help the children develop their enquiry skills by looking closely at the object and describing the details and differences we see.

The children will also use the family photo that you emailed us to support their international learning about the different names we each call our family members. We will practice identifying who each person is and reflect on special memories we have shared with them.

This week you can make links to their learning at home by practicing the family finger song that we are learning in class. It will support the children in identifying the English name for each person as well as practice their counting skills;


We begin a new Personal Quality focus next week, Enquiry. The children will use books, stories, pictures and investigations to help them practice their enquiry skills. You can take part in your own enquiry at home into families using the Sesame Street song below;
