Handy Historian Skills

Handy Historian Skills

These posters concisely show all 5 skills the children aim to achieve in their history lessons: enquiry, sources, chronology, making connections and questioning . For KS2 the skills are phrased as rhetorical questions so that the children can identify and understand the skills required to be an effective historian. This is important to help children understand how the subject differs from others. The KS1 poster is a simplified version where the children can be introduced to the key vocabulary words so they are familiar with them. All skills can be linked to individual lessons and added to SMART boards so children know the main skill that is used in each lesson
