The National Curriculum has brought enormous innovations to the teaching of primary history. Few teachers are trained in history and have had little support. This book aims to help come to grips with the issues and periods in National Curriculum history. This book aims to guide teachers throuigh the British Core Units and each extension study category, while exploring possibilities for extending children's perspectives on the past and present. It shows how stories, topics and the lives of famous people can set pupils on an inclusive and intellectually rigorous study of history. It also provides a substantial resource section containing accounts of the lives of people relevant to Key Stage 1 and 2 History plus annotated booklists of relevant historical fiction and non-fiction for juniors. This book is intended for curriculum planners, trainors and mentors of primary teachers.
