Head Teacher Karen officially opened the Year 1 Toy Museum this week! Our main topic for this term is to learn all about toys, both old and new. We invited the children to bring into school their favourite toys from home. We assembled a wide selection of different toys and set the children the task of sorting these into different categories. We came up with dolls, teddy bears, moving toys and small toys.
We thought about ways in which we could display the toys in our museum, taking tips from our recent visit to the Museum of Childhood. The children then wrote out a catalogue for the Michael Faraday toy museum in their literacy books, describing each toy in as much detail as possible. We welcomed Karen into Year 1 for the grand opening of our wonderful project.
