February 2018 – Schools Partnership Link
The children went to meet the children from Rawdhatul Uloom Primary School in Burnley at Burnley Youth Theatre. They took part in lots of exciting activities and drama games and had lunch with their new friends.
The children looked at old teddy bears and a Victorian toy called a ‘zoetrope.’ To make the zoetrope work, the children put strips of picture cards in and spun it. When it spun, the little pictures looked like they were moving to create an optical illusion.
The children looked at clockwork toys including a wind up pig and elephant which were both over 100 years old!
