Class 1 – Childhood Long Ago Session

Photos from our fantastic topic-filled Wednesday.

Class 1 loved their ‘Childhood Long Ago’ workshop with Morven from the Highland Museum of Childhood. We shared details about some of our favourite toys from home, investigated a selection of older toys, compared their materials and how they worked, learnt how to play with them, made a teddy bear timeline and discussed what children and people might’ve worn in the Highlands a hundred years ago.

After lunch, we continued our topic tasks by learning and performing two songs: ‘Aunty Mary’ and ‘Ye Canna Shove Yer Granny Aff a Bus’. Finally, we ended the day with ‘Grandma’s Footsteps’ and a friendly game of marbles.

Fantastic to see the excitement from the children and their enthusiastic engagement throughout. A really wonderful Wednesday 🙂
