Overview Sessions Minimum 2 Hours
Building a Great Unit of History
During this session, we will explore a model for building a unit of history in any year group. It focuses on creating a chronological context, understanding how to use sources and then how an enquiry can function as an assessment tool and a vehicle for further independent learning.
Unpicking the History Curriculum and Developing a Meaningful Curriculum for your School
Bespoke Curriculum Design

Being an Effective Coordinator
Key Concepts and Skills
Chronology Through School - more than just sequencing
Chronology is so much more than just sequencing some cards that represent dates. It has distinct vocabulary, concepts and ideas that can be developed through school to build understanding year on year. This hands on session shows staff how chronology can be taught throughout school to show progression and link year group topics together.
Delving Deeper into Sources - challenging the more able
There are many tasks and ways that we can use sources to help stimulate discussion, build understanding and deepen children's understanding of periods of history from the past. These tasks give practical and achievable principles that can be incorporated into all year groups for children working towards, at or beyond your school's expected standard.
