Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss H. Shears

Level 2 History

In Term One, we will take a field trip to Banks Peninsula to build on our historical investigation skills by using a range of primary and secondary sources to examine the French Settlement of Akaroa, early whaling in Banks Peninsula, and Te Rauparaha’s and Ngāti Toa’s visit south. 

We will then explore how to tell fact from fiction in the digital age by investigating conspiracy theories and analysing the historical facts to assess the reliability of sources. 

We will complete the year by investigating the causes and consequences of the Russian Revolution and considering different perspectives on this event.
