Students study around 2000 years of history! They begin by looking at the Romans and their impact on Britain, before studying how England changed following the Norman Conquest. We then study Tudor and Stuart England. This topic involves work on political and religious turmoil, conflict and what life was like for ordinary people.
We continue to develop skills through a study of a wide range of historical topics, by focusing on the big enquiry question; does Britain deserve to be called Great? This in-depth study of topics looks at the Industrial Revolution as well as Slavery and its abolition. This is then followed by an enquiry into why the 20th Century was so violent, focussing on the causes and events of World War One and America in the 1920’s and World War Two.
Students’ will build a chronological understanding so they can see change and continuity over time. Moreover, students will develop their source analysis, explanation and judgement forming skills.Curriculum Coverage at KS4
