About me: I am a very experienced KS2 teacher and history enthusiast. I have a masters degree in archaeology. Unlike other resource creators I know what works and what doesn't from personal experience in the classroom. I believe in a creative history curriculum which offers a range of activities such as artistic projects, creative writing and role play. This is reflected in the wide variety of activity options provided.
