Understanding the World
Queen Elizabeth II
In Reception, as part of Understanding the World, the children were being historical detectives. What was in the old suitcase? It was opened to reveal a set of photographs of a very special person. Who was it? The Queen of course! The learning objective was to put the Queen's pictures in order, from oldest to newest. What did the children notice about each photograph? If it was a black and white photograph, was it necessarily the oldest? The children had great fun discussing and questioning which photographs went it which order.
