This half term our topic will be about Buildings. We will be exploring different types of buildings, what are the best materials to use and finding out all about our own houses and buildings around the world !
We had a visit from a real builder who taught us about his job roles and the different types of tools that he uses.
Experimenting with materials.
We ‘huffed and puffed’ using fans and tested which materials were the strongest.
You can listen to the story of the ‘three little pigs’ by following this link
Have fun creating and constructing your own different types of buildings.

Also this Spring, the children will be immersing themselves in stories as part of our ‘tell us a story’ topic.
What is your favourite story and why?
Mrs Bailey’s favourite story is ‘ Squash and Squeeze’ by Julia Donaldson. I love this story because it makes me giggle when the animals cause chaos in the house.
Mrs Perkins’ favourite story is ‘ Peace at Last’ by Jill Murphy. I love this story because I used to read it to my little boy every night.
