Target setting in history at Key Stage 1

The setting of targets with this age group for Foundation subjects is problematic., not least because pupils’ experience of history tends to be episodic rather than continuous. Setting a target for the next history topic makes little sense , so you are best to focus on what make the work better within a topic. Often the best way is to set 3 types of questions which are the  repeated in style (with slightly different content) . For example  you might ask a similarity and difference question early in the topic followed by a change question towards the end of the topic- so similar concepts but enabling pupils to apply and feedback from the first question to the fourth or fifth.
