"It's Like They've Gone up a Year!" Gauging the Impact of a History Transition Unit on Teachers of Primary "and" Secondary History
Brown, Geraint; Wrenn, Andrew
Teaching History, n121 p5-13 2005
Year 7 history teachers frequently bemoan the lack of historical learning in the primary sector. Pupils may be well versed in suffixes and similes, but their study of history can be limited. This group of history teachers decided that things could be different. Not only did they bring enquiry methods into the primary school classroom, they also showed how such methods could enhance literacy, ICT and thinking skills at the same time. However, they left with a potential problem. If Year 5 pupils are capable of understanding why different historical interpretations have been created, in what ways can Year 8 be properly challenged?
