What a wonderful day we've had at Weston Park Museum discovering more about toys through time! We spent some time acting as museum curators looking at a range of old, new and unique toys. We got the chance to play with a huge range of toys, some of our favourites were the Jacob's ladder, Russian dolls, yoyo, skip ball, spinning tops, plastic jointed snakes and kaleidoscopes. We looked at features of toys that helped us decide how old toys were such as the materials they were made from.
Whilst we looked around the museum and discussed different materials toys were made from we noticed that some of the oldest toys were made from clay, lot's of children thought this was an unsuaitable material to make a toy from as it is very fragile. When we were curating toys we noticed however, that there weren't any clay toys to look at so we had a go at making our very own noughts and crosses games from clay. We had a really super day at Weston Park Museum and will be displaying some of our learning on the corridor!
