Year 2 1960s America Day

Hi Year 2!

On Thursday 2nd April we will be having a 1960s America day! This is part of our Historical Character project week based on Martin Luther King. We hope that the children will gain a better understanding of the similarities and differences between then and now and also be able to describe more of the characteristic features of the period which Martin Luther King helped to shape.


We would like the children to come to school dressed in 1960s clothing. Have a look at these pictures for ideas! People in the 60s wore really bright clothes, often tie dye.
