We started off the New Year with the topic ‘Build it’. Throughout the term we have been learning stories such as, ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. We have enjoyed reading the stories and have used different props to help us retell the key events. The children enjoyed their role-play building site and have used various construction materials to help them make strong structures. The children also used different materials to experiment and find out what makes bridges strong.
The children also had a visit from our local police officers and enjoyed hearing the siren, looking at the flashing lights and finding out interesting information. They were excited to have lunch with the policemen and enjoyed asking lots of interesting questions!
The children finished off the half term learning about famous structures around the world. They particularly enjoyed looking at London and were excited to talk about The Queen, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, The London Eye and the red double decker buses!
