WHY HISTORY IS TAUGHT AT PRIMARY SCHOOL LEVEL

History is on the primary syllabus in order to give children an introduction to the key events that have shaped Britain over time, and its place in the world as a whole.

Knowledge of these events will create an understanding of how and why the modern world has become what it is today, and inspire a deeper curiosity for learning about how societies and people’s lives have changed as time has passed.

How2Become KS2 History KS1 Key Focuses

KEY STAGE 1

Key focuses

  • Changes in national life within living memory.
  • Historical events beyond living memory, with national and/or international significance.
  • The lives of individuals who have contributed significant achievements.

KEY STAGE 1

Pupils should:

  • Develop an awareness of the past, using common words and phrases to describe the passage of time.
  • Know where the people and events they study fit within a chronological framework, and identify similarities and differences between ways of life in different periods.
  • Use a wide vocabulary of everyday historical terms.
  • Ask and answer questions, choosing and using parts of stories and other sources to show that they know and understand key features of events.
  • Understand some of the ways in which we find out about the past, and identify different ways in which it is represented.

KEY STAGE 2

Key focuses

  • Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.
  • The Roman Empire and its impact on Britain.
  • Britain’s settlement by Anglo-Saxons and Scots.
  • The Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England, up to the time of Edward the Confessor.
  • A local history study (this will of course vary from school to school.)
  • A study of an aspect or theme in British history that extends pupils’ chronological knowledge beyond 1066. (E.g. the changing power of monarchs – using case studies such as John, Anne, and Victoria.)
  • The achievements of the earliest civilisations, such as Ancient Egypt or Ancient China.
  • Ancient Greece, its achievements, and its influence on the western world.
  • A non-European society that provides contrasts with British history, such as early Islamic civilisation, or the Mayan civilisation.

KEY STAGE 2

Pupils should

  • Continue to develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of local, British, and world history.
  • Use a wide vocabulary of everyday historical terms.
  • Establish clear narratives within and across the studied historical periods.
  • Note connections, contrasts, and trends over time and develop the appropriate use of historical terms.
  • Address questions about change, cause, similarity, difference, and significance.
  • Construct informed responses that involve thoughtful selection and organisation of relevant historical information.
  • Understand how our knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources.

Customer Success Stories

Having helped 1,000s of people pass their assessment tests for over 16 years, it is no wonder our customers love us…

My children and I have really enjoyed using this book in our viking studies. It’s divided into manageable chunks with questions on each section which can include word searches, cross words and drawings as well as traditional multiple choice or questions answer sections. My son has said he really enjoys his viking lessons!

Contains written pieces coupled with comprehension questions, crosswords, word searches, space to do drawings etc to help to consolidate learning. The section on guidance for parents is both helpful and reassuring, and I think this book would be useful to tackle little bits of work alongside any related homework or classroom work.

This book is an excellent resource for pupils, parents and teachers for both key stage 1 AND key stage 2 knowledge of Vikings.

How2Become.com-testimonial-02

A nicely presented book that one should be able to use for quite a few years of a child’s primary education, as well as for SATS revision. Suitable for pupils, parents and educational staff alike.

This book is amazing! Very easy to read, contains lots of illustrations to break up the monotony of plain writing, definitely helps understand better the history of Vikings, also contains questions-Answers sections, a lovely history work book.
