During Autmn 2 our topic is ‘The Magic Toymaker’ and the children will be learning about toys from the past and materials. As part of this unit they will be designing, making and evaluating their own puppets.

As part of their homework I am asking your child to design and make their own board game including a short description on how to play the game and a list of rules. Alternatively your child could research 'teddy bears' or 'dolls' from the past and prepare a poster, a model, a picture or a piece of writing of their findings ready to share with the rest of the class. Could they please bring this into school no earlier than the week beginning 2/12/19. Good luck with your research!
