History

Autumn Term

Why is Enquiry so important in history lessons?

Enquiry involves asking questions about the past and finding answers by exploring the sources left from the past.

 

At Adel Primary School, we're shaping our lessons around enquiry questions and giving the pupils a chance to explore, discuss and investigate.  

Year 1 - Enquiry Question?
