Primary focus

In History the Year 2 girls and boys have been learning about the past through primary sources. They were fascinated by the ‘Brownie’ camera and enjoyed trying to view each other. They were amused by the side viewer, and surprised to learn how long it took to see an actual photo after it had been taken as it had to be sent away and developed from film.

They also looked at and discussed a variety of artefacts including records, cassettes, metal farm animals and an alphabet book from 100 years ago. The children learned how they could find a lot of information about the past from primary sources.
