To build upon our learning for our topic, ‘Toys’, Cherry Class visited Pooh Corner on Wednesday morning. The children had the opportunity to learn about some of the world’s most famous characters and all of the different toys that have been created thanks to A.A Milne’s creations over the last 95 years! We even got the chance to cuddle a Pooh Bear that was as old as the very first cuddly toy.
Amelia said: ‘We learnt how old Winnie-the-Pooh is and I loved getting to hold all of the toys – even the really old ones!’
Teagan said: ‘We talked about all of the different Winnie-the-Pooh toys. I never knew there were so many!’
IMPACT & KNOWLEDGE GAINED: Visiting Pooh Corner allowed the children to learn about their topic right on their doorstep; engaging with their community and building upon cultural capital. They learned how toys have developed over time and can now compare a part of history with what they know today.
