KS2: History: 2 - Knowledge and Understanding of Events, People and Changes in the Past

RSS Feed for Wiki Article

Knowledge and understanding of events, people and changes in the past

2. Pupils should be taught:
  1. about characteristic features of the periods and societies studied, including the ideas, beliefs, attitudes and experiences of men, women and children in the past
  2. about the social, cultural, religious and ethnic diversity of the societies studied, in Britain and the wider world
  3. to identify and describe reasons for, and results of, historical events, situations, and changes in the periods studied
  4. to describe and make links between the main events, situations and changes within and across the different periods and societies studied.
Try using a Forum Forum to pose questions about the characteristic features of the periods and societies studied e.g. Why is the Victorian era known as the Age of Invention? Why did Henry VIII marry six times? Ask the children to write their own questions. Answer questions related to change in the period studied.
Create a History   Wiki to share knowledge about the characteristic features of the period studied . For a simple version add names of historical events, people and changes as  WikiLinks to pages where you and your children can co-construct information and learning reflections. You could assign each child involved a separate aspect to research and report upon so that each child is responsible for their own  WikiArticle, but they are all working collectively.
The wiki may cover themes arising out of questions raised in a Forum.
