They will learn about their family history and heritage and find out what life was like when their grandparents were children. They will learn about what it was like to go to school in the past and how everyday objects, such as clothes, toys and vehicles have changed.

As a mini project we will also cover 'Stories & Rhymes'. This project teaches children about traditional stories and rhymes and gives them the opportunity to play with words and learn new vocabulary.

Children will be given reward badges once they have recorded 50 home reads.
