Embark on a journey through time with Online Tutors UK, where history is not just a subject, but a captivating story of our past.
Our approach to teaching history to Key Stage 1 students involves interactive activities that make learning about the past both fun and educational. These sessions are designed to spark curiosity, helping young learners to explore significant events and figures, and develop critical thinking skills early on.
In Key Stage 1 (KS1) the curriculum focuses on helping children develop an awareness of the past using common words and phrases relating to the passing of time. They learn about significant historical events, people, and places, both within Britain and the wider world. Key topics include changes within living memory, events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally, and differences in ways of life across different periods. Examples of study topics are toys, communication, and significant events like the Great Fire of London.
KS1 students often face challenges in conceptualising historical time frames and understanding the significance of past events in the present context. Online tutoring can be instrumental in making history engaging and relevant for young learners. It can use interactive methods to bring historical events to life, aiding in the development of critical thinking skills and a foundational understanding of history.
For Key Stage 2 students, history can appear daunting with its extensive research, reading, and critical analysis. Our history tutoring transforms these challenges into an engaging and insightful exploration of the past. We bring history to life, making complex topics accessible and interesting. Our tutors help students understand the broader implications of historical events, encouraging them to appreciate how history has shaped our world.
In Key Stage 2 (KS2) History the curriculum covers various themes and periods. These include changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain, and Britain’s settlement by Anglo-Saxons and Scots. KS2 students also study the Vikings, Anglo-Saxon laws and justice, and the achievements of early Islamic civilisation. Additionally, they learn about a non-European society that contrasts with British history, such as ancient Greece.
Students at this stage often face challenges in connecting historical events and understanding their significance in the wider context. They may also find it difficult to engage with and retain information about distant historical periods. Online tutoring can help by providing interactive, engaging lessons that make history relatable and easier to understand. Tutors can use varied resources and methods to bring history to life, aiding in the retention of knowledge and the development of a deeper understanding of historical events and their impact on the present.
Navigating KS1 and KS2 History exam preparation without an online tutor can lead to significant drawbacks. Young learners may face difficulties in comprehending and retaining historical information due to the lack of engaging and age-appropriate teaching methods. Without guidance, students might struggle to make connections between historical events and their relevance to the present, which is crucial for a deep understanding of history. This could result in a fragmented grasp of the subject and potentially diminish their interest and enthusiasm for history, impacting their long-term educational journey in this area.
We believe that understanding history is crucial for understanding the present and shaping the future. Our tutors are committed to making history not only an educational journey but also an inspiring adventure that stays with students for a lifetime.
