Unheard Histories: Who should go on a banknote?
During this history project, children will name the features of a banknote; make inferences about people on a banknote; explain the significance of historical figures; make inferences from different sources; decide whether a person is historically significant using specific criteria; research important aspects of a peron's life and explain what makes a person significant.
During the first part of the Autumn Term, we will be focussing on stories about the Windrush Generation. At the end of the unit, the children's writing outcome will be to write an information leaflet about a period in Black history (hybrid text type including information, recount and explanation).
