New Initiatives Affecting Primary History


By Author: Helena Gillspie. Web Editor: Simon Brown, published 1st January 2010

This unit is concerned with some of the most recent initiatives and how the knowledge management aspect might best be addressed.  It recognises that change in the children's agenda is constant.  

N.B. This unit was produced before the new curriculum and therefore while much of the advice is still useful, there may be some out of date references or links.
