 KS2 Timeline:

By teaching history in chronological order, we aim to deepen the children's understanding of time and how events are connected. For example, in Year 3, we start with the Stone/Bronze Age and then later explore the fascinating world of the Egyptians. These two historical periods occurred around the same time, and we encourage the children to draw connections between them.

In our lessons, we prompt the children to think like historians by reflecting on what they already know about a particular time period. We encourage them to question their knowledge and explore how people lived during that era. By comparing similarities and differences between different historical periods, the children gain a richer insight into the past.

We believe that this approach not only enhances the children's historical knowledge but also improves their critical thinking and analytical skills. By making connections between different periods in history, the children develop a more comprehensive understanding of the past and how it has shaped the world we live in today.
