So far we have been focusing on the children’s own history. We are working on comic strips that display events or memories from our own past. Additionally, we are bringing “memory boxes” to school with items that are of great personal value and showing them to the rest of the group! Soon, we’ll start looking at what a civilisation actually is and put this in a historic context. We’re having great fun!
