Be History Ready Year 6 Unit
Get your Year 6 children back on track with our catch-up programme for primary history. We are delighted to be working alongside history specialist Stuart Tiffany (Mr T Does History) to provide this primary catch up history resource.
Be History Ready allows you to equip your children with the primary history skills and knowledge needed for success in their KS3 geography at secondary school.
Understanding children’s needs has never been more pertinent and the Be History Ready unit will allow you to develop a flexible approach to meeting the differing learning needs of your children.
You might have to recap understanding for the whole class, or for small groups of children. The Be History Ready resource will support whichever approach is appropriate for your school so that the children are ready and confident for the challenges of secondary school history.
