Description As the Purpose of Study for National Curriculum History states, ‘A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.’ This course aims to prepare schools and Teachers for the introduction of the Revised Order (September 2014). It will provide practical ways to ‘combine overview and depth studies to help pupils understand the long arc of development and the complexity of specific aspects of the content’, the latter being ‘held’ within a wide ranging list of nine History Study Units. Children need to ‘do’ the subject and not ‘just learn the facts and dates’. It is about enquiry and the progressive use of the skills, or key elements through appropriate History study units in order to build a narrative of the past and its people. This is going to be a challenge, but this course will suggest ways in which existing provision in other subjects can work with the History to prevent the subject being a ‘trawl’ through the ‘facts’. The introduction of the revised History Order is the opportunity to ‘spice up’ your curriculum and also an opportunity to use the subject as a unifying force in a more creative and inspirational way. The day will review the changes and provide appropriate ways of making adjustments to the existing curriculum. There will be practical examples of how your history curriculum can be revitalised with the integration of the revisions, progressive skill use and also through a more holistic approach that will benefit all children. The challenge is to ‘go creative’ but without necessarily replacing everything that exists. So the workshop will provide practical solutions and ideas for handling the revisions; how these will impact upon planning and also provide practical ‘hands-on’ ways of enthusing young historians and their Teachers.
