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 class are learning all about the history of transport and explore the enquiry question 'Which transportation changed the UK the most?' They begun by making a timeline of the different modes of transport, then they explored Viking Longboats and made their own! Next they compared the first car with car today and then learned all about George Stephenson and wrote a fact file about him!

Oak class have sunk into the past learning all about the Titantic and will be discussing the enquiry question 'Who was to blame for the sinking of the Titatnic?' So far they have imagined what would have been like to be there watching the impressive Titanic launch, they discovered Captain Edward Smith was also from Stoke-on-Trent and have researched into his life and career. They have learned why people travelled on the Titanic and if they were a child then what would they have packed? Now they are looking into what life would have been like on board before reaching the iceberg!
