Home Project - Robots
Well done to all the children (and parents) who created a robot during the holidays. We have been astounded at some of these creations - some as big as children, others that move and ones that even come with accessories! We hope you had lots of fun designing, planning and making your robot together - we can't wait to see what you make next! Photo coming...

We will be revisiting some well known traditional tales and reading some new ones including Chicken Licken, 3 little pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, Golidlocks, 3 Billy Goats Gruff, Hansel and Gretel, The Gingerbread Man.
