Sheep Class Become History Detectives

Sheep class learnt all about ‘evidence’ this week, and how we can use it to prove something happened. We heard all about how one child discovered that their daddy had eaten all the biscuits because the crumbs in his beard were the evidence! The children then used their detective skills to analyse some sources of evidence, and talked to each other about what they could see and what the evidence might all mean when put together. Without being told the correct answer, the class correctly deduced from the evidence that we were going to learn about a big fire that happened in London a long time ago. They also developed some of their own lines of enquiry, such as ‘Why did the fire start?’ and ‘Who is that man (Pepys) and why is he important?’

The investigation continues…
