LO: To recognise the difference between past and present

We are starting a new topic in History called 'Family Album' so we will be looking at how things have changed over time. Have a look at the 'Growing up' power point.

Talk to a grown up about these questions:

  • Are you older or younger than when you started school?
  • Will you be older or younger on your next birthday?
  • When were you born?
  • When is your birthday?
  • How do you celebrate birthdays?


With an adult, see if you can research some information about the past:

  • How have toys and games changed over time?
  • How did they celebrate birthdays in the past? (More than 80 years ago). 
  • What toys do you play with today?
  • What toys do you think children played with in the past?
  • How are these toys different to the toys you play with now?

Can you write 3 sentences to explain what you have found out. Try to use some super conjunctions to extend your sentences!

*Next week, we will be learning about family trees. Please talk to your child about your family and look at and discuss any pictures you have.*
