In Year 6 we have created our very own timeline of British history. Firstly, we split into two groups and each group tried to order all their time period cards (without dates!). After each group organised themselves into an ordered line, we were given the cards with dates so we could order them correctly and see which group was the closest. Next, we had to figure out how long each time period lasted and scale that down into metres, centimetres and millimetres. Once we’d worked this out, some of us helped measure out a 17.017m timeline from 15000BC to 2017AD (current year). Each millimetre represented a year. Finally we measured out the distance for each time period on the timeline and marked it down. We were surprised to find that the Stone Age took up the first 12.5m of the timeline and the Bronze Age took up another 2.2m! All other eras like the Normans, the Tudors, the Victorians and the Georgians fitted into the last metre of the timeline, which we were amazed by.
