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 - 26th January 2023
Identifying curriculum pathways through Primary History at KS1 and KS2: Government
This practical webinar will show how pupils can be introduced to the abstract concept of government and which can then be systematically re-visited 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 study of possible significant individuals who headed different forms of government such as Oliver Cromwell and Ashoka, India’s first emperor. Various forms of government will also be featured from across KS2 content including civilisations, ancient Greece, Romans, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and 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:
