Primary History article

By Mary Kinoulty and Clare Barnes, published 16th July 2018

The Key Stage 2 Primary History Curriculum sets ambitious challenges for pupils: "…They should regularly address and sometimes devise historically valid questions about change, cause, similarity and difference, and significance. They should construct informed responses that involve thoughtful selection and organisation of relevant historical information. They should understand how our knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources."

This article looks at some strategies for using museums to help children discover their inner historian, based on teaching and learning at the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth.
