It is not possible to teach history without considering when events have happened. History is what happened a minute ago, yesterday and last week. The history of Britain began over 2 million years ago and beyond - a difficult concept even for some adults to understand. As a result, it is extremely important that we get the teaching of chronology right and that the children understand not only that there is an order of when things happened, but that there is also overlap, whereby different people might do the same or different things at the same or different times.
The National Curriculum states that it aims for all pupils to "know and understand the history of these islands as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day." It also makes reference to "how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world."
Using timelines effectively will support the children to develop their chronological understanding, and provide clear scaffolds and frameworks that they can utilise when considering the 'chronological narrative' of Britain's history.
During the session, we will consider:
* The importance of chronology
* What a timeline really is and why they are an important resource for children
* How to develop strategies for using timelines successfully
