Chronological Understanding: (4) Place events from period studied on a time line, use terms related to the period and begin to date events, understand more complex terms BC/ AD. (5) Know and sequence key events of time studied, use relevant terms and period labels, make comparisons between different times in the past.

 

Historical Knowledge: (4) Use evidence to reconstruct life in time studied, identify key features and events of time studied, look for links and effects in time studied, offer a reasonable explanation for some events. (5) Study different aspects of different people-differences between men and women, examine causes and results of great events and the impact on people, compare life in early and late times studied, compare an aspect of life with the same aspect of life in another period.

 

Interpretations of history: (4) Look at evidence available, begin to evaluate usefulness of different sources, use text books and historical knowledge. (5) Compare accounts of events from different sources- fact or fiction, offer some reasons for different versions of events

 

Historical Enquiry: (4) Use evidence to build up a picture of a past event, choose relevant material to present a picture of one aspect of life in time past, ask a variety of questions, use the library and internet for research (5) Begin to identify primary and secondary resources, use evidence to build up a picture of a past event, select relevant sections of information, use the library and internet for research with increasing confidence.

 

Organisation: Communicate through discussion, drawing pictures, drama, making models, writing and ICT.
