This week in our topic The Magic Toymaker we will continue to focus on Science. As scientists we will look at how different toys can move. We will look at a selection of toys and look at similarities and differences about how they move. We will then design our own toy and think about the movements; we will look at pushes and pulls. As scientists we will then look at a selection of materials and plan an experiment based on which toys can move the fastest and cover the most distance.
