History games for Early Years
Within our 'Understanding the World' area, our Early Years history resources encourage your children to talk about themselves and their families, and to compare and appreciate the similarities and differences between themselves and other families, communities, and traditions throughout history.
For children at this stage in the curriculum, we have a range of fun drawing resources that will let them engage with history in a creative way. They can decorate Easter eggs, colour a Remembrance Day poppy, make an Aboriginal dot painting, decorate a lantern for Ramadan or one for Diwali, create Rangoli patterns, design a henna tattoo, and create a shield for a medieval knight!
History resources for Key Stage 1
Our history resources for KS1 will help to develop an understanding of important events throughout history. Children can write about famous individuals and events from the past using our ready-made writing templates, clipart and photo banks to create and illustrate their projects.
Our Key Stage 1 history resource area also includes labelling activities you can use to assess and reinforce knowledge, many of which can also be printed as worksheets for use away from the screen.
History activities for Key Stage 2
Our history activities for KS2 will broaden and develop your pupils' understanding and knowledge, and help to instil love of learning about past cultures and events. We have a whole host of writing templates, clipart and photo banks that children can use to create their own work on a range of curriculum-aligned historical topics, including Roman gods and goddesses, Roman settlements, childhood and food, the Tudors, Victorians, and World War 2.
