This beautifully illustrated publication introduces Key Stage 1 children to History in an accessible, entertaining and memorable way. Built around the National Curriculum, the pack has teacher support material, which includes background information, activity ideas, teaching tips, extension work and curriculum references.

Supplementary material allows groups or whole classes to produce large, illustrated timelines and maps, which help to establish the concepts of chronology and place. Each worksheet is depicted in large, clear pictures and explained through a 'Factfile' using simple vocabulary. All are cleverly characterised to enthuse and challenge young children.

20 Great Events looks at past events from the history of Britain and the wider world. It covers 20 key events which span the globe, cultures, religions and the millennia; each brought to life and set into context.
