We will start the year with a skills unit. This will focus on teaching students how to examine and analyise sources of historical evidence. We will look at the development of Peterborough through time to ensure that students have a good grip of chronology. With these skills in place we will investigate the Norman Conquest and other key turning points in the history of Britain. We will end the year by looking at the reign of Elizabeth I. Throughout the year we will return to the themes of 'Crime and Punishment' and 'Medicine Through Time'. These are popular subjects at GCSE and it will be useful for all students to build a good knowledge and understanding of them.
