Year 1 The Olden Days

Early Years

"The Olden Days": Year 1 has been comparing Past and Present. Students investigated differences in toys, transport, technology, communication, and especially school life. They used chalk on black paper, made damper for afternoon tea and played old-fashioned games including marbles, pick-up-sticks, concentration, hop-scotch, hula hoops, yoyos and quoits. They also made old-fashioned stocking dolls and wrote with feathers and ink.
