|Curriculum Intent Statement|
The RBA History department curriculum aims to give students knowledge and understanding of local, British and world History. Our aim is to ensure that every student, regardless of whether they continue their studies beyond KS3, leaves RBA understanding Britain and her place in the world today. This will involve teaching key topics such as the emergence of Parliament, the development of the UK, the impact of the Industrial Revolution, European exploration and the British Empire, Britain’s involvement in the slave trade, the fight for universal suffrage and the impact of the world wars. Their studies will be split into Social History in Y7 and Political, Military and World History in Y8, both of which will cover the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Industrial Revolution and 20th century and be taught chronologically.
Our schemes of learning will enable students to understand how the world around them has been shaped by History and equip them to think critically, weigh evidence, identify arguments, make judgements and understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change and diversity. In order to be successful, students need to develop their understanding of the following skills: cause and consequence, change and continuity, significance, chronology, sources, interpretations, knowledge retention and extended writing. These skills will be repeatedly targeted in KS3 to prepare students for GCSE History.
