Year 1

As Historians we will learn about the lives of influential people from the past and how they have impacted and changed the way we live today. Important local figures such as Thomas Cook and David Attenborough feature in our learning about the past. Following the children’s interests will lead to a wealth of opportunities for looking at the lives of people, events and objects that have changed and developed over time. The key skills we will be learning within history are:

  • Asking and answering questions
  • Comparing the past with today
  • Using the correct language to talk about things that have happened in the past
  • Exploring artefacts
  • Research from books and online
