Here at Central Academy we provide our students in KS3 (Years
7 & 8) with the opportunity to explore a variety of topics that develop
knowledge on the history of key events and ancient civilisations, to equip students
with the ability to ask perceptive and thought provoking questions.
In History we offer a high quality education that inspires students
to be more curious about the world in which they live in, and how it has
changed over the years to what we know it as today.
As students progress through KS3, their growing knowledge
about the past of Britain and the wider world will help them understand how
historical evidence is used to make historical claims and change the
perspectives of others.
The aims of our KS3
History curriculum are to ensure that all students:
and understand the History of Britain’s past in chronological order
contextual knowledge of significant events and civilisations
historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence
These are the
competent skills that students will develop:
abstract terms such as ‘empire’, ‘civilisation’, ‘parliament’, and ‘peasantry’
a range of sources of Historical evidence
