BBC Bitesize Home Learning History Lessons
On 20th April 2020, BBC Bitesize launched all new daily lessons to help keep children learning during this social distancing period.
Each day new lessons and activities and posted with ideas and activities you can do at home as well as a wealth of information so you can be the historian yourself.
Monday 20th April: Ancient Egyptians https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z4tyvk7
(This civilisation is learnt about in Year 4 at St Joseph the Worker but that doesn't mean you can't get a headstart if you're in a younger class. Also if you're older, why not go back and test your knowledge, let Mrs Lee know that you remember when she taught you about the Ancient Egyptians)
If you are watching the daily programmes on BBC iPlayer or the Red Button then these are some brilliant links to further learning from today's programme schedule.
KS1 (Y1-2): Who was Neil Armstrong? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zhpchbk/articles/z4w3mfr
LKS2 (Y3-4): How did the Romans change Britain? https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zqtf34j/articles/z2dr4wx
UKS2 (Y5-6): Kingdom of Benin https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpvckqt
(Whilst at St Joseph the Worker, we have chosen to learn about the Ancient Maya in Year 6, learning about this would be a great way to compare and contrast the two civilisations)
