Year 7

Mosslands students begin their study of history in 1066 with the Norman Conquest and, over the year, work their way through to the reign of Elizabeth I in the 1500s (with some interesting detours along the way). Our schemes of work have been planned and tailored to lay the groundwork for students' future studies in history, whether to GCSE, A Level, university or beyond.
