To launch our new topic, we visited the Herbert Art Gallery to see, from first-hand experience, the sort of toys and games that would have entertained children many years ago.  They played with hoops, skipping ropes and hobby horses and were able to watch a zootrope.  We also visited the Vikings gallery and the History gallery where we were able to try on helmets, go in to an air raid shelter and smell a medieval toilet!
