Year 1 are learning about old toys

We had a very exciting visit to the Herbert Gallery in Coventry on Thursday to extend our learning on old toys. We had a talk with someone who worked at the museum, she showed us old and new toys. We thought about how they were similar and how they were different. She told us how we can tell if a toy is old or new. We had a fantastic afternoon!

  1. We can tell a toy is old because it is rusty and the colours have faded.

    I saw a teddy bear which was made from straw and it was ripped from each side and dusty all over.
    My teddy Bears at home are not ripped are not dusty and not made out of straw, they are soft all over.

    The Toys I saw on the trip was an old doll,a spinner and a horse.
