Our Year 1 classes had a fantastic day today, learning all about toys from the past. Mrs Jenkins hosted an interactive workshop, during which she gave plenty of facts about the types of toys found in the past and the materials they were made of. Children were encouraged to make links with their current scientific topic ‘Materials’ and to compare old toys with new toys. Their favourite part of the session was when they could handle these toys and explore how to play with them!
Next week, we will consolidate this new learning by writing a letter to Mrs Jenkins to thank her for sharing her knowledge with us.
