What a fun day we all had at MOTAT.
We had the most amazing weather and walked all around the great exhibits.
Starting with the bus ride from school...
We then had a briefing on arrival, with Teresa, our MOTAT educator.
After that, we were taken by Teresa to the MOTAT classroom which was FULL!! of new and old toys. We were able to compare wooden toys with the newer plastic replicas and play with all the toys except the very precious older ones, which were sitting on bubble wrap to keep them safe.
Some of our wonderful parents started a game of 'elastics'. They were really good at it!!
Teresa showed us a Santa Bear from Farmers, a little bit different from the Santa Bears you see there now.
After lunch, we were able to roam around MOTAT. We were given a map and exhibits to
look for, which was really helpful.
We visited the old schoolroom. We all sat in the school desks and tried to imagine being a student back then. (and a teacher!!!!!)
MOTAT have a communications house to visit, so we went in and looked at all the old telephones.
One exhibit that many enjoyed, was the 'Smelly Toilets'
They looked so real and smelt terrible. But very much fun!!!
Then we took Dilan to the stocks........
We had a very busy, entertaining day and learnt so much about many things past and present...we were so tired, some of us fell asleep on the way home....
Thank you to our wonderful parents helpers, Danlelle,Yen, Shalvin, Jingjin and Abbie.
We appreciated your company and fabulous help today..
