Describe, explain, decide
This workshop took place at the HA Annual Conference May 2016 in Harrogate.
Describe, explain, decide. Understanding the processes of historical enquiry at Key Stage 1
Penelope Harnett, University of the West of England
In this session Penelope explored some approaches to developing historical enquiry skills with young children. The workshop drew on a recent project with Year 2 pupils exploring ‘How do historians learn about the past?’. It evaluated potential starting points for investigations and shares ideas on how pupils’ progress in historical understanding may be assessed.
