How have toys and games changed throughout history?
In Year 1, we have been exploring Article 31 - The right to relax and play. We started off by looking at toys within our living memory. We had so much fun on our hook day sharing the toys we play with now. We then sorted toys onto a timeline which represented toys within our lifetime. We notice that even within our 5/6 years of living the toys we play with have changed. We then explored toys and games beyond our living memory. We challenged our parents to show us how and what they used to play with. We had lots fun learning new games and using strings and stones as toys. Our big questions we have been answering - How do I play? How did my parents play? How did my grandparents play?
