Starting in early medieval times, this book establishes a strong chronological spine, with later enquiries looking at changes in Wales thematically

A wide range of sources and interpretations encourage pupils to think like historians, using evidence to consider change and continuity, cause and consequence

Put progression at the heart of the curriculum

End-of-topic Activities build towards more in-depth end-of-enquiry Review and Research tasks. All activities and tasks enable each pupil to move through their individual learning journey towards their next ‘Progression step’
