History in the News!
Teacher Training Day
22nd March 2019

In order to make History relevant and vibrant to students, I update this page *DAILY* to provide the latest news, podcasts and TV programmes relating to history. I use it to create a weekly 'history in the news' display outside of my classroom.

You should also make use of the Historical Anniversaries Calendar for the current academic year.
