Toys In School

Toy making activities for schools aimed at children of all ages from 4 upwards.
All our toys are based on examples from the last 3,500 years.

Cross-curricular program
Toy history, Science, DT, Maths

Heuristics - to learn by discovery
 

How It Works

Each pupil makes their own toy, Start - Finish.
Create characters around the toys.
Develop stories, story telling and writing

We send the toys to you
So..... you decide when to work on the project. Today, tomorrow, an hour each afternoon ...

We give you a powerpoint presentation with
history and information about the toys
a presentation about the toys and forces
all the information to assemble the toy

Plus access to all this information on-line so that parents can be involved as well. We will make a magical appearance on a screen of your choice. Until such time as we can physically come in to school we will be available via a live web connection so that your children can meet with the toymakers and ask questions or get advice on assembling. And…..you avoid all the stresses of planning a trip whilst still delivering a fabulous topic.
