  • Learn Sheffield

Available spots

Service Description

These sessions will be co-delivered with Sarah Davis, Subject lead for history, King Edward VII School, Sheffield. The core catch-ups are ‘repeats’ of subject leader sessions delivered in previous years in Rotherham, but not in Sheffield. They are additional to the termly network meetings which will have the same content in both Rotherham and Sheffield. Rotherham subject leaders may want to attend them. This session will focus on practical approaches to the teaching of local history in the primary classroom. Local history is a key component of the National Curriculum, but also a way of making history more relevant, meaningful and engaging for pupils. Links will be made to current research and to frameworks including the National Curriculum and Ofsted. As outcomes of the session, subject leaders will know and understand: - Where local history can be located in curriculum and lesson design – thematically or in units - How to locate key resources for local history topics and how to use them to design meaningful and engaging lessons - What progress in pupils’ skills and understanding looks like and how to measure this The session will include practical ideas and resources for teaching to take away and adapt.
