Year 1 are learning about toys!

Year 1 have started this term brilliantly. They are loving their new project ‘A Toy’s Story’ where they have begun learning about toys from the past. The children have learnt about toys from the Victorian period and also the 1940s. Later this term, they will learn about toys from the 1960s and modern toys. As they learn about the different toys, they will think about what makes a toy older than another and how things like the materials have changed to make them. Have you got a favourite toy from your childhood that you could talk to your child about? I’m sure they would love to hear about it.

In our English this term, we have been learning about ‘The Tiger who came to Tea’. The children had great fun using their imagination and becoming authors by writing their own versions of the story. Maybe your child would like to retell their story to you?

The children are now working towards their toy museum outcome in a couple of weeks. As part of this, we are asking for the children to bring in a toy to share at the museum. Please see the attached letter, which was sent home last week.

Thank you
