TOYS!
We will be looking at the history of toys, what materials they are made of and the naughty toy box poem!
In class this week, toys showed up in our classroom with notes on them! After unscrambling the note, we realised the toys were asking for help! We followed the arrows and found a naughty toy box who was gobbling up toys! We created warning signs to go around the toy box, and learnt the poem 'The naughty toy box'. We are going to write letters to ask him to be kinder to the toys!

They even came in and talked to us!
