Humanities

History

 

  • Look at photographs of themselves from birth to now – how have they changed? Can they put the pictures in order from being a baby to more recent?
  • Look at photographs of themselves, parents and grandparents. Can they see what is the same? What is different? E.g. clothes, hairstyles, appearance etc
  • Talk about past and present events- have a photograph of a birthday celebration and discuss what they can see. Do they remember the event? Can they remember a holiday or visit? Use visual reminders.* Link to geography
  • Newarke Houses Museum is a great place to visit with lots of hands on activities to experience
  • Look at new and old toys, can they identify which is which? What is the same/different?

 

 

Geography

 

  • Sort pictures into categories e.g. alive and not alive
  • Think about the environment. What can they see around them? Name what they can see out of the window – shops, houses, religious buildings, schools, libraries etc
  • Where do they like to go? Discuss a favourite place, for example the park. How did they get there? * Link to history
  • On a visit talk about what they can see, how are they travelling, what they are going to do. How are things different to home or school?
  • Look at the weather – keep a daily weather chart using symbols. Experience the different types of weather on their skin, touch the rain, hail, snow, mud, throw leaves up in the wind – what happens?
  • Can they select suitable clothing for the weather? Use pictures or real items, (keep the choice to fairly suitable items- you don’t want them choosing shorts when it is snowing!)
