Autumn KS1 Overview
The History Man
Year 2 enjoyed a visit from The History Man. He taught us all about the evolution of technology and explained the amount of interesting things that our mobile phones can do. He compared this with what happened before mobile phones existed.
We saw a gramophone and listened to a record! He 'Put a sock in it' to show how this made the music quiet and explained that this is where the phrase came from. We had a go on a typewriter and all of us are thankful that we don't have to do our school work on one of those!
He also spoke about key figures who were instrumental in the creation of this technology, such as Alan Turing and Katherine Johnson.
It was an exciting and informative day.
