What a busy week! We have developed so many of our DT skills making kites, flip-books and flying caravans!
Recently in our book, some magical things have been happening! Lots of toys have come to life. We all thought this was pretty amazing and it got our brains thinking about toys!
We explored lots of old toys (even older than Mr Swallow) in our classroom and thought about the materials they were made from! We then compared them to our brand new toys and we started to notice straight away that the material used most commonly today was plastic!
We did lots of research online and in books and found out that in the 1500’s the dolls house was invented in Germany and we found out that Lego (one of our favourite toys ever) was introduced in the UK in 1958!
Now that we know everything there is to know about toys there is only one possible thing we can do!!! We’ve decided to design and build our own toys – so keep checking back through the week to see how we are getting on!
PS – check out our initial plans above to see what each team has decided to build!
