Coming in Autumn…

Your teddy wakes you up to show you three toys, which they’ve stolen from different eras: a porcelain doll, a metal car and an electronic Gameboy. You tell Teddy you need to time-travel back to return each one to its rightful owner. But how will you work out which toy belongs to which time period?


In this Experience, your class will learn about:

  • Toys through the ages: Victorian times, the 1960s, the 1990s and currently
  • Different materials (e.g. wood or plastic) and technologies (e.g. electric toys) through the ages
  • Understanding our distance from historical eras (e.g. ‘When your grandparents were small’)
  • Historical context, such as cobbled streets in Victorian times

Resources for each Experience include:

  • For EYFS, Actions Storyboard, Song Sheet and Script
  • For Key Stages 1 & 2, Storyboard, Quiz, Reading Comprehension, Writing Opportunities and Script
