Developing History Ages 9-10: Understanding and Interpreting the Past by Jane Shuter
A series of seven photocopiable activity books - one for each year of primary school. The books follow the proven, successful "Developings" formula and provide a wealth of activities to support the teaching of history in the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. History fires pupils' curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. Through the activities in this series, pupils consider how the past influences the present, what past societies were like, how these societies organised their politics, and what beliefs and cultures influenced people's actions. The aim of the series is to develop children's sense of identity through learning about the development of Britain, Europe and the world. It introduces pupils to what is involved in understanding and interpreting the past. Children find evidence, weigh it up and draw their own conclusions, and in doing so they develop skills in research, sifting through evidence, and arguing for their own point of view.
