- Jen Ager, a Year 5 teacher at High Hesket Primary School in Cumbria, immerses her class in a week-long project-based approach looking at Tudor values. Exploring the period, the class handle Tudor artefacts, listen to accounts from Tudor sailors and fire their imaginations by going out into the Cumbrian countryside to empathise with exposed explorers. The class cook and eat hard tack (sailors food) and learn about the nutritional value of weevils! Jen provides plenty of original sources for the class to analyze and even invites (via web-link) an expert from London's National Maritime Museum to visit her classroom. This is a fully cross-curricular lesson.
Dr. Hilary Cooper, from St Martin's College, Ambleside, is an academic researcher and expert in primary history who works collaboratively with many schools. Jen Ager is a primary teacher with a PE specialism who is teaching history. How can non-specialist primary classroom teachers bring history to life and get beyond dates, events, kings and queens? How do teachers like Jen help their class to explore the nature of change and reveal different perspectives to help their class work as historians? Was Jen's lesson a success? Having observed the lesson on Tudor values, Hilary discusses the strengths and challenges of the cross-curricular approach. Through analytical deconstruction of Jen's Tudor lesson they look at key issues, including teaching approaches, historical thinking, questioning, time management and values.
