Year 1

By the end of Year 1, most children should:


  • recognise that their lives are different from those living in the past;
  • show their developing sense of chronology by using terms concerned with the passing of time and by placing a few events and objects in chronological order;


  • show knowledge and understanding of some aspects of the past within living memory;


  • observe or handle information and artefacts to answer questions about the past on the basis of simple observations;


  • be able to classify some objects as old and new or as past and present and explain why; and


  • be given the opportunity to learn about significant historical events, people and places in their own locality. Due to the proximity of Holy Trinity to London, this will include a focus on Guy Fawkes.
