kS3 History

The History curriculum at SIH allows learners to develop their knowledge and understanding of local and world History.  It will equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. Students will identify significant events, make connections, draw contrasts, and analyse trends within periods and over long arcs of time. They will pursue historically valid enquiries including some they have framed themselves, and create relevant, structured and evidentially supported accounts in response. Students will also look at how different types of historical sources are used rigorously to make historical claims and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past

Our aims

At SIH the History curriculum aims for students to:
 

  • know and understand history as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day:

 

  • know and understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world: the nature of ancient civilisations; the expansion and dissolution of empires; characteristic features of past non-European societies; achievements and follies of mankind

 

  • gain and deploy a historically grounded understanding of abstract terms such as ‘empire’, ‘civilisation’, ‘parliament’ and ‘peasantry’

 

  • understand historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance, and use them to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically-valid questions and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives and analyses

 

  • understand the methods of historical enquiry, including how evidence is used rigorously to make historical claims, and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed
