History

History Curriculum Summary

Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8)

History is a course which will help students understand the history of these islands as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present. Students will also learn and understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world, alongside a historically grounded understanding of abstract terms.

Students should extend and deepen their chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world History. Students will identify significant events, make connections, draw contrasts, and analyse trends within periods and over long eras of time. They will use historical terms and concepts in increasingly sophisticated ways. They will pursue historically valid enquiries including some they have framed themselves, and create relevant, structured and evidentially supported accounts in response. They will aim to understand how different types of historical sources are used rigorously to make historical claims and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed.
