Term 1 2021 - History across the school

Year 1

Year 1 have been thinking about what History is by looking at some differences between past and present. They have sorted pictures of toys from the past and present and have matched the older item with its newer version.


They have thought about and sequenced three events in their own lives.



Year 2

Year 2 have been thinking about events that have happened in their own past and used the historical vocabulary to talk about them. They have sequenced and described some of their own memories.



Next, the children have been learning about some events and significant people beyond living memory and are starting to think about differences in ways of life in different times. They have sequenced pictures of people and events within a timeline.
