I'm a Head of History in a mixed comprehensive. My specialism is Early Modern Europe. Here you'll find resources for KS3-5, templates to help run a department, and even some PSHE resources from my time as Head of PSHE in 2015. When I'm not inspiring future historians you'll find me knitting, reading a good book, playing with my daughter or indulging in 'Prosecco Friday'.

KS3 History Assessment Tracker

KS3 History Assessment Tracker

Are you looking for a fun and easy way for your students to track their progress? Well look no further! This assessment tracker allows KS3 students to track their progress throughout KS3, whether your school has a 2 or 3 year KS3. There is space for students to record when the assessment took place, what their positives were and their next step. Students are encouraged to reflect between assessments by recording when they met their target. Two skills ladders allow students to use the tracker with homework and class work activities. One ladder focuses on PEEL writing and can be applied to all historical concepts. The second ladder focuses on source skills. The benefit of students keeping their tracker through the Key Stage means they while the scheme of work may revisit concepts in different years, students will still be able to review feedback specific to that concept. A castle for students to record historical and chronological knowledge. A method to include specific knowledge questions within assessments to help build revision and knowledge skills.
