The National Curriculum for history requires pupils to gain understanding about abstract concepts of substantive knowledge across periods while the OFSTED framework expects to see teaching in greater depth than before. This practical series of webinars will show how pupils can be introduced to these concepts which can then be systematically revisited wherever they occur in content, ensuring that pupils accumulate powerful knowledge around it for retrieval as they progress through medium term plans.
You can sign up for as many or as few workshops as you like, depending on need.
Workshop - 16th November 2022
Identifying curriculum pathways through Primary History at KS1 and KS2: War
This practical webinar will show how pupils can be introduced to the abstract concept of war and which can then be systematically revisited wherever it occurs in content, ensuring that pupils accumulate powerful knowledge around it for retrieval as they progress through medium term plans. Reference will be made to the possible study of significant individuals and events at key stage one involving warfare such as the great Carthaginian African general, Hannibal and remembrance linked to the world wars. An overview will be given of the development of warfare over time from the Stone, Bronze and Iron ages and taking in ancient civilisations, Greeks, Romans, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. This overview will be linked to the optional study of the development of warfare since 1066.
The sessions will be led by Andrew Wrenn, a knowledgeable history specialist and an honorary fellow of the Historical Association. He is an experienced teacher, trainer and writer, former LA adviser and co-author of the HA`s report on Teaching Emotive and Controversial History 3-19. Andrew recently led highly evaluated training on the impact of the new OFSTED framework on Primary History
