Y1 Homework Week 2

Hi Year 1,

Next week, we will be learning about toys from the Victorian days. For your homework, your challenge is to do some research before our lesson. Work with a grown up to find out about Victorian toys and create a poster to teach your friends. Please use crayons to colour your drawings and make sure you label each picture. We would love to see some facts too, written in full sentences with capital letters and full stops.

Good luck!

  1. Faris and I looked at victorian toys together and discussed them:
    Poor children made their own toys out of pegs and cloth to make dolls.
    Rich children had rocking horses, dolls and tea sets .
    Other victorian toys included skipping ropes, marbles, spinning tops, kites and tin soldiers 💂💂💂

  2. My mum helped to know that Victorian toys were from wood, metal and paper. The toys that Victorian children had depended on how much money their family had. Children from rich families played with toys such as clockwork train sets, rocking horses dolls and dolls houses.

  3. Poor families had to make their own toys out of wood. They would have to carve them out of a wood log. Girls like to play with dolls which could be dressed in multiple clothes. Rocking horses were also popular.

    Only rich children could afford a moving train set with 3 or more train carts. The poor children had to have wooden ones which had to be moved manually.

    The famous Jack-in-the-box is a Victorian featured toy. It was popular and not too expensive. This meant a wide range of families could buy it for their children.

    In my opinion I like Victorian rocking horses. I used to have one and they are really fun to play with! I like when you rock back and forth.
