The History Department at The Wilnecote School aims to inspire students whilst developing an understanding of historical events and the skills to interpret the world through time. We do this by exploring a range of historical events and topics such as the Tudor period, slavery, the First World War and Nazi Germany. Lessons contain a rich variety of sources including cartoons, written texts, video clips and paintings. Students delve into the issue of the development of the human race and the need to understand and learn from history to shape the future into the world we want for future generations. Students are also taught to recognise the complex relationships that exist between the events of world history.
A variety of skills are practised in lessons and cross curricular links are made with lessons such as RE, Science, Maths, English and ICT to enable students to further deepen their understanding.
