Course Outline:

This course is aimed at teachers of history in both key stages 1 and 2 and will explore practical ways of using story books to explore difficult ideas and concepts across both subjects and both key stages.

Story books are powerful vehicles to fire children’s imagination and this course will explore a range of books to stimulate discussion and debate in the classroom.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore a range of books specific to the two subjects and develop teaching from these.

Participants will have examples of short and medium term plans in both subjects to take away and use to support their own planning in the classroom.

Participants will be supplied with subject specific lists of books to use with a range of ages and abilities. These lists have been compiled and supplied to the Schools Library Service so all subscribers to their service should be able to access them.
