How to Support Your Child
Activities Children Can Do At Home
1. Make a museum
Find a ‘theme of past objects’ ( a toy/ piece of clothing/ object) around the house that can help children to generate ideas and hypotheses and label the objects. They can observe accurately, present further explanation and ask questions. Handling and observing objects in the home is also motivating - it allows children to understand the past in an interesting way. This strategy improves children's historical thinking.
2. Make a wartime recipe booklet
3. Become a Historical Detective
Use the British Museum website to get a virtual tour of the museum and explore all the artefacts.
Think of 5 questions you would like to find out.
4. BBC bitesize
Try BBC lessons that are full of history videos, quizzes and practice activities to help you with home learning.
