Reception children continue to talk about their own experiences of events. They act out scenarios which demonstrate their knowledge of the past. For example, a child may build a bus, role play the journey, then discuss bus trips they have completed with family members.
During the Summer term, year one children studied artefacts from the past, as part of the topic “Step back in time”. They learnt about different periods in history including the Victorian era and cave paintings. They also found out about significant people, including William Shakespeare and the Beatles band, as part of their cross- curricular work.
As part of the topic “Art around the world”, year two children were introduced to the Egyptians. The children attempted to copy hieroglyphic symbols, which were used by the Egyptians.
