At Key Stage 3, students study changes in the economy, society, culture and political structure of Britain, from the early Middle Ages to the Twentieth Century. They also study aspects of European and non-European history, and are encouraged to make links and connections between historical events and changes in the different periods and areas studied.
Students have opportunities to: use their historical knowledge to evaluate; use a variety of sources of information; construct narratives, descriptions and explanations of historical events and developments.
What do students study?
The course content for each year is as follows:
Historical Key Skills
Origins of the First World War
Life and Battles: First World War
Inter War Years and the Rise of the Nazis
How are students assessed?
Students learn how to make judgements about their own work and also have opportunities to engage in peer-assessment. At the end of a unit, the teacher will indicate the route at which the student is working and provide feedback with suggestions for improvement. Many assessments take the form of exam style questions to help prepare students for KS4.
