At the end of our History topic on Movers and Shakers, the classes came together for a topic outcome assembly to share what they had been learning. It was presented in the form of, 'A day in the life of..........' so that the children could 'compare and contrast' a day in their lives with a figure from the past. This was one of the skills the children have been developing, along with chronology, cause and consequence, change and continuity and interpreting evidence.
