Here are a few challenges that you can complete at home to help develop your history skills and knowledge.
1. Write a diary.
At the moment we are living through a time with lots of change. Record this in a diary daily, you could include what you have done for the day, how you have felt and your hopes for the future. You could write this in you home learning book or print the template below if possible.
2. Celebrate VE Day
On Friday 8th March, we have a bank holiday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Victory Europe Day. Below is a video explaining what VE day is. Why not celebrate by making or drawing a union jack flag, having (or even baking treats for) afternoon tea and taking some pictures. Mrs Pemberton has also set a task of writing a VE day diary entry that you could include in your above diary.
3. Make a time capsule.
You could collect items from around your house that remind you of this time and put them in a box that you could hide in a secret place or even bury! Then, make a plan to open it/ dig it up in the future to have a look at how things have changed.
4. Listen to the story of Carrie's War
BBC Teach have put together a lovely pack of video clips showing the story of Carrie's War, set in World War II.
There are also activity packs related to the video's which are listed below.
