KS3 History course should provide students with a chronological knowledge and understanding of the history of Britain and the wider world. Students will develop their knowledge and understanding of continuity and change, and their ability to explain events and developments. They will do this by studying changes in political power, religious developments, and social change. They will follow enquiries to examine the impact of these changes on people’s lives and on the development of the UK. They will also develop their awareness of different ideas and interpretations about the past. They will be able to recognise and then to evaluate, different views of the past based on their knowledge and on the provenance of historical sources. The course will provide a basis for the skills required at GCSE.
