Totally Terrific Toys!
In term 4 we will continue our learning journey as we dive into the topic of 'Totally Terrific Toys' which will include learning all about the history of toys and how they are made.
The book we will be focusing on this term is called 'Knuffle Bunny' by Mo Willems.
We started our topic with an exciting visit from a Toy Drama Company. We travelled back to the Victorian times and looked at the sorts of toys children used to play. We also dressed up as Victorian children and pretended to work in a toy factory, looking at how they made different toys, including the different materials used. We compared the toys and materials used then to what we have now.
We also learnt how to use and play the different toys. It was lots of fun!
One of our favourites was the Puppet Theatre.
For Creative week class 8 have been focusing on the famous carnival that takes place in Rio de Janerio in Brazil.
Did you know that the carnival lasts for three days?
The Rio Carnival is the result of months of preparation and people eagerly anticipate the start of each year's Rio Carnival.
It begins with the crowning of the Fat King who is presented with a giant silver and gold key by the city's mayor.
As a class we have been preparing our self for our very own Rio Carnival.
We have made masks, neck pieces to wear and we have also made our very own keys to crown the ‘Fat King’.
Take a look at our photos to see how much fun we have had creating our costumes and keys.
