Planning a Strong Primary History Curriculum – Christine Counsell
Thursday, February 10, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
This session will explain and illustrate the how and why of building a knowledge-rich, rigorous, diverse history curriculum. Christine will set out the relationship between knowledge, literacy and raising the attainment of the disadvantaged pupil. She will explain why Ofsted is focused on the four words of scope, rigour, coherence and sequencing, and she will give examples of effective planning which address both substantive and disciplinary knowledge in history. Christine will also explain key aspects of Ofsted’s research review on history and its implications for high quality primary history curricula.
