The children have enjoyed our toy topic and have had opportunities to listen to lots of different stories. Old Bear stories were favourites and during discovery time the children thought of ways to rescue Old Bear from the attic. They were very inventive; we had, fire engines with ladders, aeroplanes and even a flying dragon!
We were lucky yo have a history box of old toys to look at and compare. The children made observational drawings and looked at the materials used. They were fascinated to find out that teddy bears used to be stuffed with sawdust and were very hard.
