Year 2 Delve into History

Julie Gander | Year 2 Teacher

It’s been a busy time in the Year 2 classroom! During history lessons this term our boys and girls have been investigating technology and how it has changed over time.  Students have collected pieces of old and new technology to create a class museum.   The exhibits have taken our Year 2 students back in time as they explore the contrast between the old and the new – they have particularly enjoyed looking at older toys and discussing how they are different to their own toys.

Our class museum has plenty of interesting and eclectic pieces – one of these is a doll that is approximately 90 years old as well as some toys from the 1980s.  Our Year 2 students have also loved watching video tapes and listening to audio cassettes and records.   How time has changed!
