Year 1 visit to the Toy Workshop at Ely Museum

11th November 2019

Yesterday, Year 1 attended two toy workshops run by Ely Museum. We had lots of fun learning about old toys, and the materials they were made out of. We were even able to play with some of the old toys! We saw a puppet show of Sleeping Beauty where the characters were on sliders – just like we’re learning about in DT! - and another puppet show of a Russian folktale about a runaway bun, which reminded us of the Gingerbread Man! We learned lots of old circle games, like ‘Farmer’s in his Den’ and ‘In and Out the Dusty Bluebells’ and we played ‘Hide the Thimble’ too!
