This History Quest series complements the Science Quest series and the Geography Quest series to provide a comprehensive programme of S.E.S.E. activities for children.
The series meets the emerging needs of pupils and teachers, reflecting the aims and objectives of the revised curriculum. It is recognised that modern schools have access to a wide range of information sources, including the internet. This series will mediate this information and consolidate children’s learning in line with the curriculum and the Plean Scoile. It is strongly recommended that any internet activities are carried out under teacher supervision and that the school’s internet settings are set to maximum security.
