History is a compulsory national curriculum subject at Key Stages 1 and 2 and, throughout primary school, your child will be studying a range of different history topics. A new national curriculum for history was introduced in September 2014 for EYFS history, KS1 history and KS2 history.
For primary-school history homework, your child will often be asked to find out facts about the topic they are studying, look at different sources, create a timeline, perhaps create a poster, a model or come to school dressed as someone from that period. As parents, you'll be encouraged to help your child research the topic, and perhaps further their interest by arranging visits to any relevant places of interest or museums.
As anyone will know who has done a search of the internet, you can never be sure whether the sites that come up are suitable for children. But with the Homework Gnome, you don't have to worry! Every history topic is covered in an age-appropriate style, with information, images and videos suitable for primary school children*.
To get started, just look through the list below to find the topic your child is studying at school now.
