KS1 History Enquiry Frameworks
Black History Month
We loved celebrating Black History Month at Trewirgie. We had a very busy week learning about amazing people that have made a difference to the world we live in. In the EYFS we learnt to celebrate our similarities and differences, we read stories, sang songs and danced to some amazing music from around the world. We enjoyed learning the story ‘The Mega Magic Hair Swap!” by Rochelle Humes and explored how each one of us has unique hair! In Year 1 we learnt about Marcus Rashford and the amazing work he has done to help children just like us. We were inspired to write him letters letting him know that we thought he was an amazing role model and thanking him for work he has done to feed children in schools and support food banks. In Year 2 we learnt about Rosa Parks and Mary Seacole. Their stories were inspiring and we began to realise how much they had impacted the world we live in today. We created artwork inspired by Alma Thomas, we loved the bright bold colours and patterns she created and loved creating our own.
Year 1 Trip.
In History we have been learning about the seaside. On our trip we explored what we can see and do at the seaside now. We were really good at spotting things from our viewpoint above Portreath beach.
The Platinum Jubilee Celebrations
In June 2022 we took a whole school approach to celebrating the Queens Platinum Jubilee, creating a visual timeline of the Queens reign. Across the school children learnt about significant periods within the Queens reign, before creating portraits of the Queen for our timeline. We also had a Jubilee celebration where parents and carers were invited to view our timeline and join our singing celebration.
