Teachers Pack - Key Stage 3

These downloadable sessions have been designed to facilitate the implementation of the new History curriculum from September 2008 at Key Stage 3. They provide the opportunity to 'investigate aspects of personal, family or local history and how they relate to a broader historical context' and 'make links between history and other subjects and areas of the curriculum, including citizenship' (QCA: The National Curriculum 2007).

Pupils will have access to a variety of archive materials to help them investigate and understand how they can be used to answer questions about the past. "It has been a rewarding process for myself and my colleagues using the archives to produce this series of lessons, not only for us as teachers but also as historians. In our pilot session to test the feasibility of this resource the student response was so overwhelmingly enthusiastic that we are committed to working to produce more learning opportunities for our students using local archives."

Maria Brothers, Head of History Bury Church of England High School August, 2007
