The consultants here at Focus Education have prepared a range of Focus Mini Clips. These are short video inputs on current and relevant themes which are a great starter to any staff meeting or twilight session. Pause, rewind and share with staff in your school.

Product Description
The National Curriculum states that "A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world." And that "It should inspire pupils' curiosity to know more about the past." In order to gain that depth of knowledge and understanding and to inspire curiosity, the children need to be shown the links between different time periods and historical peoples - the golden threads if you like.
Within the National Curriculum there are various substantive concepts that run throughout. These are the 'big ideas' that we want children to focus on in order to identify and make links between different aspects of History.

It refers to these concepts:
* Chronology
* Continuity and change
* Cause and consequence
* Similarity and difference
* Significance

But whilst these substantive concepts are extremely important, there are further concepts that can be explored which will already be running through your curriculum. For example, the concepts of 'empire', 'farming' or 'trade'. We can use these concepts to teach history in a way that brings it to life and supports pupils with building on learning year on year.

During the session, we will consider:
* How well you understand and know the historical concepts within your curriculum
* How these concepts can be built into existing History topics
