Teaching history

History is an incredibly valuable subject to learn. It builds enquiry skills, fuels the imagination and helps children feel a sense of self in a wider context. 

But with thousands of years to cover, it can be hard to know where to start. We have gathered together advice, hints and tips from teachers, education experts and historians to support your teaching of the past.
