History

People of the Past

Our new topic is called 'People of the Past' and we are going to be learning all about important figures in History throughout this topic. This week I would like you to..

1. Find out about an important/famous person from history.

  • Design and make a costume/props for that person or

  • Create a name badge  for your person, decorated with pictures/symbols that say something about their life.

2. How do we remember important/famous people from the past?

  • What types of things do important/famous people do?

  • Why should we remember important/famous people from the past?

3. Write down 2 or 3 facts about your famous person.

 

If possible, email photos of your costumes, badges and  writing to - 

proctorh@eagley-infant.bolton.sch.uk by the end of Thursday afternoon. These can then be uploaded to our website . In this way, as a year group, we can learn about many different famous people from the past.

 

4. At the end of the week look at all the photos that are on our website.

Discuss how these famous people from the past can be sorted into groups based on what they did.

Prompt and support your child, as necessary, to arrive at similar group headings to the following:

Musicians

Explorers

Inventors

Rulers

Nurses and doctors

Artists

Scientists

Speakers and campaigners

 

Ask your child to think about the personal qualities those people might have needed in order to be successful.

 

Do you think they needed to be a good listener?

Do you think they needed to be brave?

Do you think they needed to be a good communicator?

Do you think they needed to be good with numbers?
