History

History is a story - it is our story. It tells us of our origins as people with different cultures and traditions. It tells us of change through time. History provides our students with a sense of perspective so they will know where they stand on the map of time. Patana students study people in different cultures and societies in a wide context: political, social, economic, religious, technological and cultural.

In the key stage 1 children begin to build up an awareness of historical concepts through themes related to their personal experiences such as "me", "my house" and "families". Emphasis in Primary is on the development of research skills: children develop their ability to describe and question historical situations and are encouraged to interpret evidence and form judgments about its reliability and value.

In the Secondary School History includes study units of British, European and American history, with particular emphasis on aspects of Asian history; for example, studies of the Khmer civilisation, Mughal India, Imperialism in South East Asia, the Vietnam War and modern Chinese and Japanese history.

The course of study for the IGCSE examination provides continuity with the IB history syllabus with the focus on 20th Century World History.

Students at Patana have many opportunities for first hand historical research through the programme of day and residential visits which include the Ancient City and Kanchanaburi.  For students in Years 9 to 13 study trips to Vietnam, Beiing and Shanghai are a significant part of the programme.
