Year 5 have had a fantastic half term learning all about how clothing has changed through time and why.
Each week, we’ve been presented with different items of clothing which have led us into learning all about the time they were worn in and the lives of those who wore them. We’ve explored many different historical periods ranging from the Ancient Mayans in 1800 BC right up to England, 1940. This has really helped to develop our chronological understanding.
By using their historical skills and investigating a range of primary and secondary sources, as well as researching in library books and online, the children have been able to provide excellent descriptions of how and why clothing has changed through time.
We presented our learning as a historical catwalk. Here are some of the highlights!
