More ways to make the teaching and learning of history better in the primary classroom. Building on the two previous sessions, we will revisit some topics and explore ways of tackling them by linking the content more closely to relevant concepts.
1. Stone Age to Iron Age revisited: Discovering ways for planning using clearly identified concepts as well as content.
2. The post 1066 unit: Some ideas on linking this to earlier British history in order to help them build up their ‘Big Picture’ of history.
3. Significant individuals revisited: A potential bridge between Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. What does make an individual ‘significant?’ And who are some of the significant individuals we might study in Key Stage Two?
4. Using stories in the classroom: Children love stories – how can we use them to enhance learning and understanding in history?
5. Some new resources to try out.
