Following on from the hugely successful "Start-Up History", "Step-Up History" has been created specifically to support the schemes of work in the History Curriculum at KS2 - the next step up! Highly illustrated with colour photographs and diagrams, each spread addresses a particular topic. Text is clear and divided into easily digestible paragraphs, whilst key words are highlighted. Suggestion boxes throughout each book provide activities and tips for the reader, whilst a spread at the back for teachers and parents provides more activity suggestions, and advice on how to use the book with children.
