History WALT conduct an historical enquiry.

Imagine if this pandemic and consequent lockdown had taken place 50 years ago. Would children be spending their time at home in the same way as you are? Would families be engaging in the same activities together? Now is a fantastic time to speak to older people you know to find out about changes in living memory.

Use this sheet to plan your enquiry and to record your findings. Give yourself a couple of days to complete this, so that you allow plenty of time to gather your evidence.
