History Part 2

This is the second session of history covering local studies.

Yr1/2: reinforced their understanding of how history is about time and how to spot differences between now and then. Using the photographs from last week we went around the school so the children could visually see the differences. When we got back to class they had an adult who had, not only been a pupil at the school back in the 60’s, but was now working there, to ask questions to as a person to person fact finder.
