Vocabulary 2

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 using a wide vocabulary of everyday historical terms..

As KS1 children learn how to talk about the passing of time, and recognise that historical events may have happened long ago or more recently, they begin using a wider vocabulary, including some historical terms, to help them describe these events comparatively. For example, they may understand that events like the Olympics or a celebrity wedding have happened relatively recently, but that the Roman invasion of the country happened a very long time ago.
