Year 2 historical timelines
In year 2, as the start of our Great Fire of London topic, we have been developing our understanding of chronology. We started with a chalk timeline on the playground and plotted on when we thought our grandparents and parents were born. It shocked some of the children that their grandparents were born in the last hundred years! They all confidently knew which year they were born in and where to plot that. Tomorrow the children are bringing in the artefacts they would save from a fire and I am very excited to see those and hear their explanations. What wonderful historians you are year 2!
