Travelling back to the 1940s

Lesson: History

Class: Year 1 Year: 2017 - 2018

This half term the children are learning about the past. Our topic focuses on the changes in technology and how this has impacted our lives. We have had a brilliant week and already know this will be a topic we all remember! The children have dressed up and experienced life in the 1940s through role play in our 1940s house. They have learnt to darn socks and weave rugs as a way to 'make do and mend'. We have compared kitchens and houses throughout the decades and in our museum the children have had to guess the function of different objects that they have never seen before (we had some very creative ideas!). We have even been learning to play games from the past and now have some very competitive dominoes players!
