Webinar series: Creating curriculum pathways through primary history at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2

HA webinar series for primary teachers

We are pleased to announce a new series of webinars exploring the teaching of substantive concepts in primary history. The National Curriculum for history requires pupils to gain understanding about abstract concepts of substantive knowledge across periods, while the Ofsted framework expects to see teaching in greater depth than before. This practical series of webinars with Andrew Wrenn will show how pupils can be introduced to these concepts which can then be systematically revisited wherever they occur in content, ensuring that pupils accumulate powerful knowledge around it for retrieval as they progress through medium term plans.

Each of the webinars can be attended on their own or as a series.
