History - KS3 Curriculum
The History department at Archers Brook strives to develop students awareness of the past starting from 1066 upto modern day. This allows pupil's to understand the reasons for the world as it is today.
A major focus for students is 20th Century History including 'The Great War' and World War II as this is still relevant today and to make sure that they have a clear understanding about the sacrifices that our recent ancestors gave and the legacy they have left.
Students are asked regularly to reflect on Historical evidence to formulate opinion and to develop skills in gathering thoughts and feelings about certain periods of time.
