Join us on our learning adventures.

Back to the 60s!

Friday 27th January | 4 comments

Following on from our 1960’s performance on Monday, we have been learning all about everyday life in the 60’s. The children loved listening to our visitors on Wednesday, and enjoyed looking at the fantastic range of objects and clothing that they brought in. A big thank you to Florrie’s mum, grandma and friend, Alice’s mum and grandma and Sophie’s grandma and great aunt for coming in and sharing your stories.

We have been investigating artefacts from the 1960’s and comparing them to objects we use today.  Can your child talk about what they were used for and how different they are to today’s household objects?


In maths, we have been using different methods for subtraction to help us solve money problems.

We used dienes (tens and ones) and blank number lines to record our subtractions.


Play this game at home with a partner.

    Erin is thoroughly enjoying all the different aspects of this topic. We have had lots of fun spotting things from the 60’s and listening out for 60’s music that is still popular today. She really enjoyed the visitors stories. Thank you!

    Looks like a great week. I think you must have all had a great time learning about the 1960s.

    Ashwin had lots to say about the visitors who came and talked about the 1960s. He enjoyed learning about the old typewriter.
