Key Stage 1
In Key Stage 1, the National Curriculum is broken into the following areas:
Changes within living memory. Where appropriate, these should be used to reveal aspects of change in national life.
Events and Changes to consider:
- 2012 Olympics and Paralympics
- Founding of the NHS
Events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally.
Events to consider:
- Introduction and impact of different transport methods (train, car and aeroplane in particular)
The lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements. Some should be used to compare aspects of life in different periods.
Individuals to consider:
- William Caxton and Tim Berners Lee
- Amy Johnson and Amelia Earhart
- Blackbeard and Grace O'Malley
Significant historical events, people and places in their own locality
This obviously depends completely on your locality but contacting your local history groups would be a good place to begin - the wealth of their knowledge is incredible!
Remembrance using your local memorial is always another option too.
