a. use inference and deduction b. look for meaning beyond the literal c. make connections between different parts of a text [for example, how stories begin and end, what has been included and omitted in information writing] d. use their knowledge of other texts they have read

a. to talk about what information they need and how they can find and use it [for example, searching the internet or a CD-ROM, using printed material, asking people] c. to interpret information, to check it is relevant and reasonable and to think about what might happen if there were any errors or omissions

Pupils could use a census database to search for information and identify and explain patterns of change.
Pupils could develop their knowledge and understanding of, and skills in, Historical Enquiry by using Learning Platform resources to research information provided as text, images, sound and media. For example a Group Homepage may be developed to provide information in a variety of sources including links to other sources.
Pupils can ask and answer questions and select information for their enquiry through the use of Forum and Surveys. In a study of Britain from 1945 pupils may create surveys to ask their grandparents about life at that time and open a Forum to discuss issues arising.
Pupils could record their Historical Enquiry through a variety of Learning Platform Resources including: wikis, Custom Pages and quizzes. They could use a number of ICT tools to do so including the Sound Recorder, embedding media (Photostory3, digiblue videos) or uploading powerpoints.
