This morning we enjoyed a "constructors Challenge" where we adapted the Visible Thinking Tool CHALK TALK to rotate around the different construction centres and literally build on each others ideas! 

   
  



It got us thinking about our Big Question for this week...

HOW ARE TOYS MADE?
We linked this to a BIG PROVOCATION (something to think about).... YOU HAVE TO BUY TOYS.

We will explore the different ways we can make toys in our new TOY FACTORY, developed by the children today.

Don't forget to share the learning on SEESAW with your child this week!
