History Cheat Sheets – the complete set

A little under a year ago, I set out on a project to provide helpful ‘cheat sheets’ for Key Stage 2 teachers faced with tackling a completely unfamiliar curriculum. I had no idea quite how complex the task would be. I was (and indeed remain) no expert in areas such as 10th Century Islamic Civilizations, or the pre-Roman period of British History.

Thankfully, through the wonder of Twitter, I was able to enlist the generous help and support of a number of willing volunteers, and finally I am delighted to have published a full set of 12 support sheets for each of the statutory and optional areas of the KS2 curriculum.

Credit for their various efforts must go to those who went to the effort of researching, preparing and compiling the sheets for their various strands – it is no mean feat:

Ilona Aronovksy @aron_ovsky

Kim Biddulph @schprehistory

Dr Richard Farrow @FarrowMr

Alison Leach @StoneAgeKS2

Jo Pearson @JoPearson3

Tim Taylor @imagineinquiry

I am eternally grateful for their help, and I know that that will be echoed by many in schools up and down the country. The whole project feels like a testament to the profession, and I couldn’t be more proud!

The final booklet can be downloaded from this link, and can also be found on the Free Resources page along with various other bits and pieces.

I hope folk find it useful.

    These are great, very useful – Thanks Michael and Co. Any plans for World War sheets?

      No particular plan, as WWII is no longer a part of the statutory KS2 curriculum. Of course, if someone wanted to write one, I’d happily add it to the collection.
