Students with Usain Bolt's figure

Students will step forwards and backwards in time.

Core Objectives:

  • Identifying significant individuals throughout history
  • Understanding how individuals are shaped and challenged by the historical contexts in which they live
  • Empathising with individuals from different historical periods
