Scheme of Work: Thematic study - Education

Primary Scheme of Work, KS2

By Tim Lomas, published 20th September 2016

Children can be introduced to the idea that educating children has a long history with many changes over time, sometimes with turning points and significant developments. This unit examines some ideas about change, e.g. the pace and nature of change, the impact of change and continuity. It draws upon content from other units to allow some comparison and introduces pupils to a variety of sources that allow them to evaluate these changes over a long period of time.  It is designed to enable pupils to understand broad sweeps of history in a meaningful way.

This can be taught to any age group within key stage 2 but may be easier in upper key stage 2 when children may have a better chronological awareness and have covered more periods and societies. If taught to a younger age, some suggestions for adapting it to pupils of different ages and abilities are included at the end of each of the three enquiries.

Please note that this scheme of work contains resource suggestions, however it is not a fully-resourced scheme of work. To view a sample scheme of work, please refer to our Anglo-Saxons unit
