In our history learning, the year 1s have been exploring how houses have changed throughout history. We started 2000 years ago in the Iron Age looking at how homes were made without windows using mud straw and wood. The children were surprised to find out that animals, such as sheep also lived in the house too! We also explored Saxon homes and Victorian homes.
We looked closely at Tudor homes and how they were constructed. The children then had a go at planning their own Tudor homes as a team. Next, the team worked together to create their own Tudor houses using what they had learned. Once the children had finished their projects, we evaluated the houses and discussed what we would do differently next time.
