Before,during and after.
Following on from last weeks lesson , the children have been comparing how Germany has changed over the past 100 years. The children were able to describe and compare events that had been significant to the changes made in Germany. Some children compared events before and after the war, where as some compared what happened before, during and after. To expand their knowledge the children were then able to describe in detail the impact that some of these events had on the nation as well as identifying any positives of the war. Have a look at some of our work!
Spring 2- The Biltz
The half term the children are going to be exploring the Blitz during World War 2. To begin our topic, the children discussed in groups what they already knew about World War 2 and what they would like to find out. As a class we discussed some of the key events that took place, it was then the children's task to order these events in chronological order and present them on a timeline. Some children then went on to give a brief description about each event. Brilliant work this week Year 3/4B!
Experiences of Children in the Past Compared to Present Day Using Robots
This week the children have compared what it was like for children using robots in the past and present. The children had to identify the features of the robots, suggesting why that robot was better or worse than past or present robots.
How robots have changed over time.
This week in History, we have made a fact file showing how the robots have differed over a period of time. The children worked in partners to research about three different robots and then discussed the main differences. Have a look at some of our amazing fact files!
During Autumn 1, we are learning about robots from the past and what they're used for today. The children began by writing some of their own questions that they wished to research and then used the iPads to find out the answers. Following on from this, they then learnt about the jobs that robots have taken over from humans. We're keeping our fingers crossed that they won't take over all our jobs!
