Love Learning. Aim High. Trust God.

A toy-tastic trip!

Today Year 1 and Year 2 visited Hertford Museum to learn more about toys from the past. 

When we arrived we were met by Sarah who shared some lovely teddy bears with us. The older teddy was smooth and had very little fur left because it had been cuddled so much!

Then we had a fantastic time playing with a whole range of old and new toys, including slinkies, Jack-in-the-boxes, yo-yos, and spinning tops! Sarah also showed us a picture of a little girl called Nelly, who lived 110 years ago and we learnt that she would have played with some of these toys. 

Finally, we ended our trip with a visit to the galleries upstairs and had great fun playing in the shop and watching the images move on the zoetrope.
