Ideas and resources to support your child's learning at home:
- What would you put in a time capsule? We are planning on burying a time capsule at the new school site. Think with your family about what information or items would show how we live today.
- Draw out your family tree. Ask questions of different family members to see how far you can trace your family back!
- Call some of the older members of your family and ask them questions about their life when they were a child. What did they do for fun? What was school like? What was their house like? Record this information as a fact file/ poster/ power point.
- Find out about a famous person in history. Florence Nightingale or Edith Cavell might be especially relevant.
- Our school building was opened in 1974. Research what interesting (child friendly!) world events have happened from 1974 - 2020? For example: In 1976, the first Star Wars film was released. In 1980, the wreck of the Titanic was found. We saw the first Harry Potter book published in 1997. Record your findings as a poster!
- BBC Bitesize is excellent for History resources, with guides, videos, activities and quizzes.
- Norwich Cathedral has home learning activities, including resources on Florence Nightingale and Edith Cavell.
- The Historic England website includes an education section that includes teaching activities, power points and worksheets.
- Online, you can also take a virtual tour of The Natural History Museum and The British Museum among others!
