We teach history using Connected History for pupils from Year 1 to Year 6. Connected History is a progressive and rigorous programme that engages and motivates pupils and encourages them to see the world through the eyes of young historians.
The programme consists of a number of enquiries, each of which has a key question underpinned by several sub-questions for pupils to complete in turn as they progress through the investigation. Each enquiry includes detailed subject knowledge and is supported by a wealth of historical sources, including original texts, quotations and images of artefacts.
Examples of enquiries include:
What does it take to be a great explorer? (Key Stage 1)
How do our favourite toys and games compare with those of children in the 1960s? (Key Stage 1)
How did the arrival of the Romans change Britain? (Key Stage 2)
Why did the ancient Maya change the way they lived? (Key Stage 2)
Why was winning the Battle of Britain in 1940 so important? (Key Stage 2)
