Toys come to life for Year 1 pupils...

Year 1s at Tilbury Piooneer Academy recently had a visit from Patrick who brought the History of Toys to life following our topic unit on toys throughout time. Patrick brought along replica toys dating back to ancient Egyptian times all the way up until the recent 90s. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed seeing their learning brought to life through this visit. 
 
In the afternoon, they had the chance to build their own toys from items you would find around your house, which for the children was a realisation that recycled items could also become toys.
 
The pupils were really focussed all day, and the teachers were very grateful to the parent helpers that came along - they couldn't have done it without them.
