Artefact, childhood, decade, housewife, museum, past, present, today, Victorian.


This term, our history project teaches children about everyday life and families today, including comparisons with childhood in the 1950s, using artefacts and a range of different sources. We will look at words and phrases related to the passage of time and explore artefacts to help understand childhood in the past and how it has changed over time.  We will explore timelines with the six stages of life and look at what a family tree is and even make our own! When looking at the 1950s, shopping, transport, family life and childhood will be explored. By studying photographs, we will also learn about the Queen Elizabeth II's coronation and its significance.
