Autumn Term 2

This term we are learning about Toys and Games. We will look at toys from around the world, toys from the past, modern day toys and games, board games, jigsaws. 

We are going to make our own toys and games as well as have a puppet theatre. 

We are continuing our phonics journey and are starting to move onto Phase 3.

We are going to read the story of ...... This is the Bear. 

And learn the poems below to help us make our own toy box poems. 

What's in the box?
What's in the Box?

What's in the toy box?
What's in the box?
What's in the box
With the big brass locks?

There's a one-eyed ted
And a ball that's red,
Some building bricks
And a clock that ticks,
A plastic boat
And a duck that floats,
A wind-up car
And a silver star,
A doll that cries
And a plane that flies.

That's what's in the toy box!
That's what's in the box!

The toys’ playtime

When we go to bed at the end of the day,
Our toys wake up and start to play.

They wait until we’re fast asleep,
Then THEY come alive and out they creep.

The ball goes bouncing. The doll does a dance.
The little ponies preen and prance.

The toy car roars across the room.
The rocket starts to take off: ZOOM!

The robot reads a picture book,
Then teddy comes and takes a look.

And all the time we’re sleeping tight,
The toys are playing through the night.

But when the sunlight warms our faces,
The toys sit quietly in their places.

They do not move. They make no noise.
You don’t fool us, you naughty toys!
