History lessons at Rosetta will inspire pupils’ curiosity, provide them with the skills necessary to know more about the past and enable them to further understand how historical events have impacted the world in which we live. Although fundamentally significant British topics remain an important aspect of our curriculum, the Rosetta History Curriculum is a ‘World History Curriculum’ in the sense that we are striving to avoid a Eurocentric view of History. The teaching of History at Rosetta will equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, develop their ability to analyse perspectives, recognise objective forms of evidence and form opinions based on this evidence. Rosetta’s History curriculum is knowledge based, though it is very much underpinned by the use of key  skills. Each lesson has a skills focus, which steers to the direction of the inquiry. The link between component and composite goals within the History curriculum is a key factor in determining the structure and nature of a sequence of learning.
