Toys from the past and present

For our Year 1 History topic, we investigated toys from the past and present. We also explored the various materials that were used to make toys through history, in our Science topic. We noticed that similar toys that we play with today were played with many years ago, however the materials used have changed over time.

The children in 1T used the knowledge they learnt from the topics covered in Science and History to make their own teddy bears and could not wait to take them home for a cuddle!
