SUBJECT OVERVIEW

The aim of History is to help students learn about the significant people and events of the past.  They will learn to make connections between different areas and develop their historical understanding.
 
Within the History curriculum students will have access to learning resources including text books, videos & DVDs, the use of ICT and opportunities to carry out investigations outside of school.  Students will investigate a wide range of people, places and events.  They will explore events that have shaped our history, looking at the people, policies and alliances involved and asking whether if lessons can be learnt from the past.  Students will be encouraged to develop their enquiry skills and will complete research projects.
