Blast from the past!

12th Mar 2018

Today we saw a beautiful range of antique toys and models, brought in by Frances and Jackie Wilson. 

Frances and Jackie owned a model shop in Scotland and they showed a selection of their antique collection. The children loved seeing toys which their Grandparents may have played with! 

We looked at a 1972 Meccano ferris wheel and learned that Meccano have been making toys since 1901. Tomas in P1 thought the Ferris Wheel was so cool and Shay seemed quite sure it was made of metal! 

Dinky toys were on display and I think the children were itching to get them out of their boxes! We learned how keeping them in their boxes keeps their value!
