This topic is an exciting one to teach particularly when pupils are given opportunities to debate various issues e.g. 15th century explorations and childhood experiences across times and cultures. Independent research and write ups, speaking and listening in group presentation exercises, all help to improve pupils learning skills in both curriculum and personal development.
