Blow The House Down!
During this topic we will listen to and read different versions of the story The Three Little Pigs. We will look at the character of the Big Bad Wolf, writing character descriptions and compare these to wolves in other stories.  You could talk about this story or read a version with your child.  Why not use the word mat below to read and write words from the story.

As scientists we will find out about different materials and their names. We will investigate the properties of materials and explore whether they are natural or man-made. We will look closely at what we use specific materials for and why.  You can look at different houses and talk about the materials you can see or look at how many different materials you have around the home.  Listen to this fun song to learn about different materials!

In Geography we will be looking at homes around the world and comparing the materials used in cold and hot climates.

In history we will also be looking at houses and homes from the past, making comparisons of how they have changed over time. 

In Art and Design the children will explore different wallpapers to make their own patterns then develop their drawing skills to use lines and dots to represent different materials.

Towards the end of our topic we will combine all of this knowledge in our Construction Day to design, build and evaluate a house for the 3 Little Pigs.
