Toys 

What better way to develop historical knowledge than through play!

RECOMMENDED FOR FOUNDATION - YEAR 4

 

The best way to learn how toys have evolved over time is to play with them!

In this incursion, students rotate through a number of stations exploring varying toy themes. They will discover how toys have evolved over time by exploring their movements, cultural significance and the materials they are made from. Student’s imaginations will be engaged and their sharing skills encouraged as they encounter examples of toys from as early as 2000 BC - the oldest toys in the world!

Our qualified teachers are fantastic at tailoring sessions to suit your focus and we can make links to subjects such as English, Science, History, Design & Technology or for topics such as History of Toys, Forces, Push & Pull, Material & Movement and Science Week
