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 - 9th March 2023
Identifying curriculum pathways through Primary History at KS1 and KS2: Religion
This practical webinar will show how pupils can be introduced to the abstract concept of religion 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 the significant individuals at KS1 strongly motivated by their faith such as slave trade abolitionist Olaudah Equiano and the Dalai Lama. An overview will be given of the development of religions and interactions between them from the Stone Age onwards, taking in ancient civilisations, Ancient Greece, the Romans, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and including the curricular options of Islamic Civilisations, the Maya and Benin.
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
The workshops will be structured as follows:
