Toy Story: An Inquiry into Toys by Prep Students – First Year of Formal Education in Australia.

Yesterday, was our Prep Toy Expo. The whole school community really supports our Prep students. The Expo is attended by parents, grandparents, all students and teachers. It’s a wonderful experience for our Preps to explain their toy design and show their toy. There were  80 plus Prep students, their toy and design brief set up in our multi-purpose room. The Expo runs for one hour and is very busy. Great conversations were heard, with older students and parents asking terrific questions about each toy.  I’ve included a couple of pages from a design brief. The other pages have photos on them. Photos of children are not included in this blog. The last page is a student reflection and teacher reflection.

Today was football day. Yesterday, the children took their toy home, but one returned today. This toy is a real character, although I’m sure he could be dressed in better colors.

Cheers Nina
