Subject Vision

The Ivanhoe History curriculum helps to explain the world as it is, by exploring the world as it was. Understanding of the past is developed around a backbone of British History. Enquiries explore global, continental and local topics, emphasising the complexity of the past and the constructed and contested nature of History. To this end, students develop their thinking by exploring the past from multiple perspectives and viewpoints. We strive to make our curriculum representative of all the past’s diverse inhabitants. 

 

Key Stage 3 Objective Statement

Ivanhoe’s KS3 curriculum delivers a knowledge-rich understanding of the history of Britain and the wider world from the Middle Ages to the present day. Students will explore 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. They will also develop an understanding of the methods of historical enquiry, including how evidence is used to make historical claims, and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed.
