Book Session

Explore this special old house to learn about life in the past, then discover and play with toys used by children at Blakesley Hall.

Pupils will develop speaking and listening skills by describing how to play with the toys and identify different materials. They will be encouraged to make observations, ask and answer questions, develop vocabulary and discuss similarities and differences between toys in the past and modern toys.

Our replica toys include cups and balls, yo-yos, quoits and Bartholomew Babies.

(School visits to Blakesley Hall are available Tuesday - Friday.)
