Teaching history without reference to genuine historical sources from the relevant period is unimaginable, as engaging with real historical material can inspire and captivate pupils’ interest. By introducing them to a source-based approach, their learning can be transformed and their historical skills developed. 100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: History is brimming with imaginative ideas to teach history in the primary classroom. With each idea based on an original historical source from The National Archives, this book takes a skills-based approach that will not only help pupils understand the methods of historical enquiry, which is a key aim of the National Curriculum, but also make history real, captivating and exciting. Themed to cover different source types, including photographs, government reports, cartoons, royal seals, manuscripts, and private and official letters, this book is ideal for building a picture of the past. The historical sources can be previewed in the book and downloaded from a companion website, allowing them to be integrated into teaching tools.
