KS3 Exploring History

Inspire young historians and build the foundations for GCSE

Exploring History is a new KS3 History resource that will inspire your young historians to continue to study the subject further and will help to build the foundations for GCSE.  With its enthralling narratives, sources, illustrations and activities, our new KS3 Exploring History resource:

  • Inspires and engages students of all abilities
    Enthralling narratives, sources, lively illustrations, differentiated activities and engaging enquiry questions designed for students of all abilities that really spark learners' interest in history.

  • Supports both 2 and 3 year Key Stage 3 courses equally
  • Specifically designed around the Pearson Edexcel KS3 Scheme of Work, our KS3 History course supports schools choosing to teach over either 2 or 3 years equally, by providing separate teacher resources for each approach.

  • Provides a new, free Interactive Scheme of Work to help with content selection at KS3
    Our new Interactive Scheme of Work  recommends a teaching route through KS3 based on the options you select at GCSE – whether you teach KS3 over two or three years – and helps you manage the time needed to teach the history content.

  • Embeds the skills and knowledge students need to succeed in progressing to GCSE 
    Develops the skills students will need for KS4 by gradually increasing the level of demand along the four key skills strands of the Pearson Progression Scale and by incrementally introducing GCSE-style questions. Embeds some of the key background knowledge needed to get to grips with the GCSE topics.

  • Works with the Pearson Progression Service to make tracking progress simple and accurate
    Half-termly and end of year assessments with markbooks, facilitate regular tracking of student progress, allowing you to identify strengths and weaknesses.

  • Offers a specifically designed pathway to the Edexcel GCSE (9–1) History qualification
    The topics have been carefully chosen to provide key background knowledge for the units in the Pearson Edexcel GCSE course, without repeating content, and GCSE-relevant skills are carefully built through the course.
