Training objectives

This series of network meetings are for history leaders in primary schools.

Over three sessions teachers will ensure that the national curriculum for history is in place (long term plan)
In addition medium term planning will be developed using the 6 steps approach to historical enquiry at KS1 and KS2.
Planning will be to ensure all children are able to make good progress across the key stages using the Age Related Expectations developed by Hampshire History team linking with national initiatives for primary history.

Throughout all sessions exciting activities will be shared to ensure history is rigorous, engaging and fun.

Learning outcomes

Teachers can expect a balance of presentations and activities through each session.
