Our Curriculum Intent
Curriculum aims - History
Statement of intent
The History department will bring out the best by engaging students with History and bringing the past to life in an exciting and enthusing way. This will allow students to understand their history from a local, British and world perspective.
This will enable all our young people to have coherent knowledge and an understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. This helps students to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
History at Three Rivers Academy encourages all students to think like an historian helping students to analyse complex concepts like change and significance as well as, importantly how to analyse and evaluate contemporary evidence and interpretations and teach them skills to think critically and create clear and coherent arguments.
Thinking like a Historian means we aim to teach students the values that will shape their lives and prepare them for living in modern and culturally diverse society. It will help them become adaptable and to make reasoned arguments based on evidence that lead to clear judgements and evaluations.
