Family History
A list of all the things which have happened in your life so far would be called a timeline, not a time-lord!

Family History

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 understanding personal and family history.

As KS1 children develop their understanding of what history means, they begin understanding their own personal history, how things have changed in their own lifetimes and the relationships between the different generations of their family. They can visualise their own personal timeline and draw sensible conclusions based on what they know.
