KS1 famous people for new 2014 history curriculum

spending quite a lot of time working up high quality learning activities on Caxton and Bell as part of a communications topic. Uninspired by Gove’s asinine suggestion that we teach Tim Berners Lee’s life to infants. How on earth can we make it practical? instead I’m plumping for Bell where there is a lot of role play surrounding invention of phone. Gove is no fan of role play I gather . presumably this is why he feels Edith Cavell is an appropriate life study. Who wants pupils to role play the firing squad?
