Expert in primary history Dr Hilary Cooper discusses a cross-curriculum approach to learning with Jen Ager, who recently applied the approach to teach about Tudor values.
Dr Cooper, of St Martin's College in Ambleside, is an academic researcher who works collaboratively with many schools, and Jen Ager is a primary teacher with a PE specialism who is teaching history.
