Some pubs are hundreds of years old!


This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 History for children aged 5, 6 and 7 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with how locations may have changed over time.

As KS1 children develop their understanding of history, they may begin to look around their own locations and notice how things have changed over time in their local environment. This could be in a variety of locations - houses, churches or other buildings, or perhaps their school or local park.
