Optional Extras




It’s Local History Month so why not look into the near and distant past of the area you live? That could be your house, a significant building or place or the nearest town/village. Be creative in how you present your research – you could interview local people (at a safe distance), use online archives or be a history detective and see what you can see!

Using the template, write a postcard to yourself from a point in history. Tell them what’s going on, what might happen next and how amazing the experience is. Here’s a few ideas – Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation; the original VE day in 1945; The end of the Battle of Bosworth.
