The first half term in Year 7 is a time of transition where we deliver a broad period of content with basic terminology and skills that should have been covered at KS2, so that students all start from an equal point. Then we deliver a two-year Key Stage 3 scheme of work following the national curriculum in England.
The content allows students to gain knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We teach the chronological period from Medieval England (1066) to the present day. We take into account the different backgrounds and cultures of the children we teach at AMA and devise a curriculum that covers areas that are relevant to their context or where we feel there will be large gaps in greater depth, so that their curriculum is personal and purposeful.
