The Titanic



Local History Week 

During Local History Week, Year 2 have been learning about Etruria in the 1950’s and 1960’s. We looked at maps from both eras and compared the land use. We found out that the roads and park in Etruria had not changed, but where there was once a steel works, we now have shops on Festival Park.

We learned about the clean air act starting in 1956 making the burning of coal illegal. The pollution from the bottle kilns was greatly decreased. We wrote setting descriptions in English and painted the landscape before and after the Clean Air Act in art.

We compared music from the 1950’s and 1960’s as well as different games that were played in each era. In the 1950’s, children played droughts, dominoes and tiddlywinks. In the 1960’s children played with a Jack in a box, twister and marbles.

We looked at continuity and change and compared things that were the same in the 1950’s and things that were different in the 1960’s.

Finally we learned about the Queen’s coronation in 1953. We wrote invitations to a street party, we learned dance moves from the 50’s and 60’s and we held a street party to celebrate.
