10 lesson Scheme of Work - History of Britain (Stone Age to 1066)

This sequence of lessons covers a number of elements of the Key Stage 2 History curriculum in a fun, engaging and dynamic way. I am a trained Secondary teacher who is currently working in a Prep School so teaching Year 5 and 6. As such, I have embedded a number of the higher level historical skills into this scheme of work. There is an assessment at the end which will gauge pupils retention but more importantly their ability to interrogate source material.
