During our history sessions, we have been sequencing periods of time chronologically and describing the contrasts. We chose a wide range of sources as a basis of research to answer our questions about Ancient Egypt and to test our hypotheses. We created information boards and leaflets about Ancient Egypt, including information on: work life, the Nile, religion and life after death. Finally, we looked at historical anachronisms in Ancient Egypt, London and Blackpool.
History Of The School Research.
In history we researched our school over the past 40 years. As evidence we looked at: pictures, registers, books and photos. We worked in groups and agreed on topics to interview pas teachers, current teachers, past parents and current great-grandparents of the school. We were able to write effective questions and conduct an interview, understanding the difference between open and closed questions. To conclude the topic we created a magazine article “Our school 40 years ago”.
