Historical Fiction


Historical fiction for kids doesn’t have to be dull. Picture this, it’s 1066, Edward the Confessor has just died and a power vacuum threatens the future of England. What happens next? Our historical fiction pack encourages children to think a little deeper, explore a variety of different possible outcomes and re-write history in any way that they wish. Through harking back to pivotal points in England’s history, children learn about the differences between the life that they know, and the life that their ancestors lived.


And the benefits don’t stop there. Featuring both independent and group activities and engaging writing tasks, teaching historical fiction has never been easier.
