Scotland Street School Trip

Room 1 went to Scotland Street School for our trip.  We were learning about toys in the past and the materials they are made with.  This helped us today when we took part in the Toys Workshop.  Iain, our guide showed us to a cloakroom from 1906 before he split us into a line of boys and line of girls.  He was very firm with us - just like a teacher from the past.  We then did hopscotch down the corridor - even the adults!  Iain then told us about the belt and why teachers used them.  Scary!!

We then had a look at some playground toys that children would have played with.  Some of us tried hoola hooping, and then we nominated Miss Breslin to show us her hoola hooping skills!  We then sorted toys into different categories.  Iain was very impressed by how well we did.  After that we made our very own peg doll.

We sat in a 1950s and 1960s classroom, cookery classroom and a classroom from WW2.

Even Nathan the Bear had fun!

What a fun day we had.
