A message from Miss Clementson our History Lead:
The Spring term is our History Term at Wombwell Park Street and each class loved their history topic. It was so inspiring to see such a passion for history throughout school and see how much was achieved. It's a shame that we had to cut the term short, however there are plenty of ways we can make sure History is still studied whilst we're not in school.
With this in mind, here are some links for you to use for learning at home. There is a wealth of information on the internet to inspire young minds so please take time to visit each site and look at the different topics.
The history overview is on the main history page of the website so you can see the objectives for each year group but please feel free to explore all topics and immerse yourself in the subject!
All websites will need careful monitoring from parents due to some topic content and links to other sites so please be mindful of this.
This site has a wealth of information about a range of topics. It shows key artefacts and uses good key vocabulary for each topic. There is also a quiz to take part in when you have read about your favourite topic.
Horrible Histories is a fantastic way to learn about history with a bit of humour too! There are lots of different activities and links to watch clips and episodes of the show. There are songs and quizzes and it covers a wide range of historical topics.
National Geographic Kids covers a range of topics including Ancient Greece, the Titanic, the Vikings and famous people such as Rosa Parks. A brilliant site for learning about your favourite history topics.
This YouTube channel teaches about cooking in the past. Mrs Crocombe teaches you how to cook through videos and it would be lovely to try this as a family! The cucumber ice cream looks interesting! There are also other videos including links to English Heritage places to visit and fashion tutorials.
You may need to click on the correct key stage for learning activities and information on this site as some are aimed at Secondary school children. There are also some videos to watch and recipes to try.
This website includes topics from the Celts right up to modern day history. There are many key questions and facts to learn and key vocabulary is explained well.
This site is split into sections so you can learn about World History or focus on different countries within the United Kingdom. You can learn about different era's and famous people. Clicking on British History will open a lot of topics. There are also daily history lessons with links to videos.
The BBC website has lots of information although is down at the minute so I will add the key stage links separately when it is back up and running.
