Local history comes alive

1st November 2019

We were delighted to have the opportunity for our children to visit one of Coalville’s most important local historical sites. Palitoy provided thousands of jobs over the years for local people and millions of toys for the children of the world. Thanks to the Coalville Heritage Society our children were able to find out all about Palitoy and the magic of our very own toy factory. In school Mrs Beniston, from our premises team, shared her experiences of working at the factory and Mrs Wright, from  Giraffes Class, brought her collection of tiny tears dolls in from home so the children could see first hand the toys that were produced over the years. A wonderful learning experience for everyone.
