Long Ago




In the Long Ago project your child will learn about their history and how they have changed from when they were babies. They will learn about their family history and heritage and find out what life was like when their grandparents were children. They will learn about what it was like to go to school in the past and how everyday objects, such as clothes, toys and vehicles have changed.


Supporting your child at home

  • Look at photographs of the children as babies and discuss how they have grown and changed.
  • Look at family photographs so the children can see family members when they were children.
  • Talk about what your life was like when you were a child.
  • Share and discuss the Did you know? resource.

Stories from the past

We started our new topic Long Ago, reading the story ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. We compared the little girls life in the story with our own, what was the same and what was different, thinking about decor, fashion, food and packaging. 

Yearly Changes

We have explored the four seasons, the order they go in, what we enjoyed about each of them and which was our favourite. We learned which months belonged in which season and which month and season our birthdays fall in to. The children worked together to sort the image cards according to their season. 

Children went on to draw a picture representing their favourite season. 

Nursery Rhymes 

We have really enjoyed singing and sharing our favourite nursery rhymes. 🎵 Some of us have learned some new ones this week too. Here’s Receptions rendition of Baa Baa Black Sheep.... 🐑
