NURSERY children were given a history lesson using new and old toys.

Victoria Masson, acting head of history at Oaklands Catholic School, in Waterlooville, visited Morelands Nursery, in Crookhorn Lane, and took along lots artefacts from the Hampshire History Centre.

Mrs Masson said: ‘It was the first time I’d ever worked with such young children so I had to do things differently.

‘To teach them about old and new I took along a very old pair of roller skates and a shiny, plastic new pair. And we compared a Victorian doll to Barbie – which they all recognised from Toy Story 3.

‘It was great fun and they could tell the difference between the artefacts.’
