The Key Stage 2 curriculum consists of both content and skills and we need to make it a coherent whole.
The content consists of British units:
- Stone Age and Iron Age;
- Roman Britain,
- Anglo- Saxons and Vikings,
- as well as an extended chronological knowledge beyond 1066
- an ancient Civilisation,
- a non- European Society,
- the impact of the Ancient Greeks
Don’t forget your local history unit too; either taught separately or incorporated into other British units. The trick is to sequence your teaching in a way as to help children build up a coherent picture of history- both British and world: do they fit together? What are the similarities? What are the differences? Use the flexibility offered by KST2 curriculum to develop your own comprehensive history curriculum.
