Course overview

Discover what makes quality teaching of History by exploring how to ensure coverage of the National Curriculum through practical creative methods which will engage children in interactive methods which can be adopted and adapted for different age groups or themes, whilst ensuring progression and challenge for all.

We will look at how to develop the skills of young historians with practical ways to develop enquiry and perceptive, historically valid questions, careful observation and critical judgement of evidence and the development of perceptions of the past. There will also be opportunities to share good practice.

This course will...

  • Present practical ways to encourage a “hands on” approach and ways to put the story back into History, with suggestions of how to evidence in children’s books.

  • Inspire you how to achieve an engaging interactive approach to the teaching of History through the use of artefacts, pictures and other historical sources.

  • Unpick the National Curriculum, to fully understand how to ensure coverage of the aims with progression and challenge for all
