Hello,

 

this is my first post although I have been using the forum for a bit and picking up lots of useful info - thank you! I am student teacher and have just completed my first block practice and enjoyed it tremendously - doing the topic of celebrations. Next term we'll be doing How things work and I would be grateful for any ideas of successful activities for this topic.

 

Thanks

Thanks for the replies - I am sorry to ask at such a busy time year - any other ideas for 'how things work' ? Any book suggestions gratefully received.

I would go with Marion's suggestion because it links in beautifully to Christmas and is of direct relevance to the children.

You could also provide the children with items to take apart in order to see how they work - such as a bicycle bell or a pepper grinder. We dismantled teddy bears last year to see how their joints worked (cheap charity shop ones). NB Ikea sell jointed "flat" bears in a range of sizes.
