Brueghel Play in Y1
As part of our 'Toys' topic the children in Year 1 pretended that they were children from the Victorian Age. We spent the whole afternoon on the school field and the children played Tug of War, Leap Frog, Hoop Rolling, Skipping, Hopscotch and Marbles. They also used cardboard boxes for pretend play and made dens against the fences. The children had an amazing time and many of them asked when they could do it again !
