Knowledge organisers

Each unit is supported by a knowledge organiser which details the key facts and vocabulary for each unit. This is sent home in advance of the unit, allowing children to make a head start on their learning. Click here to see our knowledge organisers.

Bringing history to life

At Earlham we think it is vital to immerse children in history, to actually show them what life was like in the past. We would normally take the children on educational visits to a wide range of places to bring their learning to life. We take full advantage of our location in the capital city and the fantastic range of museums, galleries and historic buildings we have in London. Last year our trips include the Ragged School Museum, Hampton Court Palace, theatre workshops about Empire Windrush, the Museum of London, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the Museum of Childhood, the Tower of London, the London Transport Museum, the London Mithraeum, the Geffrye Museum, the Maritime Museum and the Imperial War Museum. 

This year we are unable to take the children out on visits, and we are also operating a policy of no visitors in, as part of our Covid-safe school. So we are using stories, role play and artefacts to help the children understand how people lived in the past.

Year 1 explore homes in the past

Year 1 have been enjoying learning how homes have changed over time. They were a bit shocked to learn that many Victorian homes did not have inside bathrooms or toilets, and that people had to use an outhouse or a chamber pot!
