History in EYFS & KS1:


In EYFS, children will learn about the past and present, and how things change over time through their 'Understanding the World' area of learning. In Birch class they are looking after a caterpillar to see how it changes into a butterfly! At the beginning of the term we all planted beautiful flowers and plants, I wonder how they will look when the seasons change?

Willow Y1

In the Autumn term, Willow class learned all about the history of transport and explored the enquiry question 'Which transportation changed the UK the most?' Each time they delved into a new mode of transportation they added it to their own transport timeline.

This term, Willow class will be learning all about Kings and Queens looking into the enquiry questions 'How has the role of the Monarchy changed over time?

Oak Y2

In the Autumn term, Oak class sunk into the past learning all about the Titantic and discussed the enquiry question 'Who was to blame for the sinking of the Titatnic?' The children had lots of fanstastic ideas and thoroughly enjoyed this topic!

This term, Oak class will be learning about the Victorians and exploring the enquiry 'How was a child's life in Victorian Britain different to mine now'?'

Maple Y6
