Year 1

In Year 1 we start thinking about events in beyond our living memory, building on from what we learnt in reception about our living history.  We look at two historical aspects comparing famous people and their achievements in the spring term and then looking at our seaside history in the summer term. 


Spring  - Not all superheros wear capes!

Understanding how normal people can do things that change and save lives.  Everyday people can be superheroes too!  Look at historical superheroes  eg Edith Cavell, Florence Nightingale – compare and contrast; why were they life changing? 

Summer  - We’re all going on a summer holiday.

How have seaside holidays changed over time?  What was Lowestoft beach/seaside like in the Victorian times how has it changed over time?  How do seaside holidays in the UK contrast to a seaside holiday in another country?
