They think about changes within in their life learning about how they have grown and comparing past with present.  They begin to make sense and think  about their place in the wider world, learning  about the uniqueness of individuals through discussing other faiths, religions, cultures and  countries.   


They will begin to learn about history through participation of traditions and specific days such as Saints days, Remembrance Day and Bonfire Night.  They will find out about historical figures through books, both fiction and non fiction and they will begin to learn about things that happened before they were born and using family members as sources.  


Children will be encouraged to use common time related words when retelling their news enabling them to begin to sequence events they have experienced, as well as pictures or events from stories. They will experiences many traditional tales and Nursey Rhymes, learning that these have been retold over many years.
