Key Stage 3 History

History at Key Stage 3 aims to develop a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, as a chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day.  Pupils develop the skills to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement about the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, over time.  This follows a chronology from Medieval times, English Civil War and restoration, Victorian Times, WWI and WWII to modern history.
