This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 History for children aged 5, 6 and 7 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with studying events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally.
Studying nationally or globally significant events in our history is an important part of the KS1 curriculum. This is often done as part of broader topic work and may involve exploring several different historical sources to build a clear picture of life at the time. The Great Fire of London is one such nationally, if not globally, significant event.
