Year One's new, history based topic, Toy-tastic, launched last week with a Teddy Bears' Picnic. The children wrote an invitation to grandparents in which they asked a question about toys in the past, and then made all the food for a picnic. They had two Design Technology focussed days learning lots of skills to make biscuits, sandwiches and vegetable sticks ready for the grandparents.
The week culminated with grandparents and other relatives coming for the Teddy Bears' Picnic, bringing their own childhood toys and photographs. This really brought the topic alive for the children and it was such a pleasure to welcome the children's relatives into school. Thanks to everyone who made time to come along.
