"Can we always find happiness in a Toybox?"

This term our enquiry question is "Can we always find happiness in a toybox?" Our focus is History and the children will be learning about homes and toys of the past and through the decades. We will explore what it could be like to be a child in the past or present without toys and how toys have changed significantly. The theme of happiness will allow children to relate to others in less fortunate circumstances. Our learning will take us on a tour of medieval castles and exploring toyboxes from then, into the victorian period, and our grandparent's and parent's toys. 

Complimenting this learning is our core book this term:
