Developing language and literacy through inspiring history

The day will demonstrate how combining learning and teaching in history with language and literacy in exciting and challenging ways can improve standards in both subjects. Principles will be exemplified in practical sessions relating to three fully resourced and documented key question led enquiries which colleagues will receive:

  • Key Stage 1: The Great Fire of London
  • Lower Key Stage 2: Norman Castles
  • Upper Key Stage 2: Ancient Egypt

Key Objectives 

All colleagues will leave:

  • Understanding the rationale for teaching language and literacy in combination with subjects such as history;
  • Knowing how to blend the development of language, reading, writing and subject vocabulary with mastery of historical skills, concepts and understanding;
  • Being able to design historical enquiries utilising language and literacy which are progressively more challenging in terms of subject outcomes Years 1- 6
