About The Event

How can we teach creatively yet still meet the statutory demands of the primary curriculum? How can we ensure that teaching in depth also equates to deep learning? What does teaching for mastery really look like? How can we be sure that our most able learners are aiming for mastery in any year group? Using formative and summative assessment in Primary History as an example, this course will demonstrate how to ensure that children really develop their skills in mastery and depth across a curriculum map with deep and challenging learning leading to regular landmark assessments.

It will show how this kind of powerful enquiry-based learning, building in frequent opportunities to revisit concepts and skills in the style of Bruner's spiral curriculum gives schools more confidence that evidence can show real progress in a world without levels.

This practical course will;

  • Clearly define learning in Mastery and Depth
  • Show how to plan for mastery in particular historical concepts and skills
  • Demonstrate how to make effective use of assessment for learning and pupil voice in Primary History
  • Demonstrate how to plan a sequence of learning leading to landmark assessments in Primary History
  • Show how to populate a Primary History curriculum map with landmark assessments revisiting concepts and processes over time, considering the transferability of ideas to other subject areas
  • Please note that there will be some overlap with last term`s course Leading the new Primary History curriculum.

Suitable for Head teachers, Curriculum Leaders & Primary History Subject Leaders.

Session Cost: £120
