KS1/2 History - Time and Place



According to the QCA, many children at Key Stage 2 lack an understanding of chronology; a difficulty that often hinders the teaching of history.

In this programme, we meet Kate Gooding from Christ Church School in east London. She combines the techniques of active timeline and role play with a visit to the school's local church in an attempt to ground the children's understanding of the past.

Organised with the help of Gail Richards, a history specialist from a local school theatre company, this lesson demonstrates some exciting ways to introduce the difficult topic of chronology.
