Course Content:

The history content taught to year 7 is designed to provide students with several key skills to equip them with the tools to study history in Key Stage 3 and beyond. The course is divided into several units which are studied in chronological order, to build students understanding of both causation and chronology. Students will also be given regular opportunities to develop their extended writing, both through writing narrative accounts of events in history and through source analysis. The units studied are:

Conquest and Challenge: England from 1066 to 1509

The Reform of the Church and Monarchy: England from 1509 to 1603

Towards a constitutional monarchy: England from 1603 to 1832

The Early Empire and Transatlantic Slavery

Students will complete formal assessments three times a year, including end of year assessments, to assess their progress throughout the course. Assessments will require students to use their knowledge from the whole of the year 7 course. Students are encouraged to take care of their books as these will provide all the information which they need to revise for these assessments.

Course Text Books/Websites: There is no specific text book however we will be using the books below to support the students in lessons;


Invasion, Plague and Murder: Britain 1066-1509- Aaron Wilkes (0198393180)

Renaissance, Revolution and Reformation: Britain 1509-1745- Aaron Wilkes (0198393202)

Additional Materials/Equipment required: Students should not need any additional textbooks during year 7.
