In Year 5, the children have been exploring how to create digital timelines, how BC and AD timelines work and ways we can use online software to work collaboratively.

They began by organising the dates of the Pharaohs in  Ancient Egypt on paper. The next step was to explore a wider range of events and organise them on a BC to AD timeline as a team. Once this was complete, they were ready to transfer the timelines online using Google Sheets, where they could work together, in their groups, in real time. Everyone found this very challenging at first, but they persevered and realised how vital good communication is! Finally, the online timelines were complete and we evaluated our work by presenting to the class in our groups and doing a peer review.
