You will have two rotations in History in S1 of around six weeks.
In the first rotation, we will look at some key historical skills such as identifying primary and secondary sources and creating timelines. Alongside this, we will look at the local history of Eyemouth focusing in on smuggling, Gunsgreen House and the fishing disaster in 1881.
In the second rotation, we will look at the Vikings with a key focus on why they settled in Scotland, impacts they had on life and culture in Scotland and similarities and differences between our lives and theirs. There will be a chance for some outdoor learning (weather permitting) on the Viking warriors.
