On Friday, Team Country had a toy day linked with our Topic - How have games changed? They used their experience to think about the materials the toys are made with, how have they changed throughout the years and how they are different between their peers.
Tropical Butterfly House
Team country experienced playing board games throughout the ages. They learned new rules and strategies to the games and identified similarities and differences between the games they would normally play at home. The children wondered about why games have developed and why people today still choose to play games founded in the past.
