We have had a wonderful start to the term. We have started a new topic call Magical Toy maker. As a beginning to the topic we got to go on a train to Trowbridge museum. The train ride was a bit scary at first but we loved it (It was only 6 minutes too!). It rained lots and when we got to the Museum the gentleman who ran it arranged for a class to go and look around Trowbridge town hall too instead of walking about in the rain. We got to see the judges room and pretend we were on trial. We also got to see the holding cells that people were held in. Some of them were very small and very old!
After the town hall we went out in the rain to the park where we tested all the equipment to see what sort of forces they used. It was lots of fun but very rainy and wet.
This term we have also started to design and make our own toys! We are going to make a push button toy. Our designs look fantastic and we cant wait to start making them. You will have to wait and see how they turn out at our Christmas fair.
Lastly we have started learning the songs for the Christmas play we are doing. It is a play called Babushka and it is a Russian Nativity story. We all have our parts now and we know some of the songs already!
