Alphabet Thinkers Key



As part of our learning about toys we decided to put together a list of toys, we decided to use Tony Ryan's Alphabet Thinkers key to put a list together. We put a twist on it, Angelina and Pari wanted us to use the percussion instruments we have been practicing with during music time.
This is our end result.

Marvellous Toys

For writing last week we had to put on our Green thinking hats and invent a new toy. It was hard thinking of toys that had never been made before.
After we had talked with our thinking buddies we had to write about our toys. Then for art we had to bring our writing to life and draw our toys.
Check out our completed work.

Toys from Mayotte

Today we learnt about a little country called Mayotte. It is tucked in between Madagascar and Mozambique. Arthur's mum and dad lived and worked there for 3 years.


The children do not have toys like us, they make their toys out of things we would throw out.
Here is a picture of a toy car made from an old oil can.
