End of Lower Key Stage 2 Stage Historian
By the end of year 4, our Key Stage 2 Historians chronological understanding allows them to place ages in order of time with use and understanding of BCE and CE. Our year 3 and 4 historians observe evidence, asking questions and coming to conclusions based on what they have seen. They are able to explain how prehistoric evidence has been found and understand the benefits of using more than one source of evidence for their historical enquiry to gain a more accurate understanding. Historians in Lower Key Stage 2 are questioning, discussing and evaluating the reliability of sources of evidence. They can suggest and evaluate causes and consequences of historical events explaining changes over time representing this with evidence. Finally, our wonderful year 3 and 4 historians can discuss the importance of people and events in time and the significant impact they had on society explaining social, ethnic, cultural and religious diversity.
