Key Stage 3 History

KS3 History
This year we have launched a new scheme of work in line with the new national curriculum. In year 7 the students will spend the first term focusing on life in Britain before 1066. In particular they will develop their understanding of life in Celtic Britain before then moving on to look at how the Roman Invasion changed life in Britain. From Christmas, students will learn about life in medieval England and how the Black Death affected the lives of peasants and wealthy alike.
In year 8 students focus on life in Britain in the years 1500-1900. Core topics include the Tudor reign and Henry VIII’s creation of the Church of England. From Christmas, students will focus on the Civil War, the Atlantic Slave trade and Industrialisation. In the summer term, year 8 will be focusing on their local history topic and the filthy and dirty conditions in London in the 19th century. The final topic will be an in-depth look at one of London’s most notorious serial killers: Jack the Ripper.
In year 9 students start the iGCSE course but also study two topics that are not on the iGCSE specification, that being World War One and World War Two. Students study the various different theatres of war during both conflicts as well as life on the home front. Again, the students will focus on local history by studying the Blitz and the effect it had on Londoners during the Second World War.
Through these topics the students will be tracking key themes across these periods of British History: settlements, public health and the spread of disease in citi
