Toys From The Past

Key Stage One


Handling, discovering and comparing toys both past and present allows children to learn about history through familiar objects.

This investigative workshop enables pupils to compare the similarities and differences of historical artifacts through the understandable medium of toys. Toys from the past can be offered as an out of classroom learning activity or as an 'outreach' visit
