Are you ready to travel back in time?

This half term, we’re taking a trip to the past to discover what life was like at the time when we were born. Younger children will come along to our Teddy Bear’s picnic, so we can observe how toddlers play and move. We’ll also find out how babies change and grow over time. Thinking about our childhoods, we’ll use photos and objects from the past to help us remember special times including weddings and christenings. We’ll talk about our families and share happy memories of people or pets who are no longer alive. Learning about the days, weeks and months of the year will help us to work out how long we will have to wait for our birthdays to arrive! We’ll decide how objects from the past were used and have fun learning games, songs and dances from bygone days.

We’ll share class memory books, collages and a rap with you at the end of our project and make memories that will last a lifetime.

 

Help your child prepare for their project

Looking back on the past can be funny, poignant and interesting! Why not get together as a family and share photos from the past, commenting on wacky clothes and happy holidays? Alternatively, visiting a local museum would allow you to see what life was like in the past. You could also play some traditional games from your childhood. Hopscotch, skipping and conkers are all lots of fun!
