A PowerPoint with 40 Inspirational People that can be used as an independent research task, possibly for fast finishers. A different person/slide will be displayed each week for the children to use ICT to find out information on significant people throughout history. The children can independently research a different person, take notes of what they have found, record it on a post it note. At the end of the week we will have a discussion on what they have found out about the person and we can then keep all the info in a folder. to reflect on their learning.

I can discuss why people and events from a particular time in the past were important, placing them within a historical sequence.
