Pentecost - Childhood

In the Childhood project, we will learn words and phrases related to the passage of time. We will explore artefacts to help us to understand childhood in the past and how childhood has changed over time. We will explore the six stages of life and explore timelines and family trees, eventually creating our own. Everyday life in the 1950s will be explored, including shopping, transport, family life and childhood. We will also learn about the significance of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953 by studying photographs and online sources. The children will use maps to explore how places have changed over time and highlight any similarities or differences between childhood today and childhood in the 1950s. At the end of the project, we will create knowledge organisers for children who are about to study the topic of childhood.
