History at Owslebury

History at Owslebury is where children travel through time to explore lessons from the past that have shaped our present and future.

What is it like to be a historian at Owslebury Primary?

History is brought to life with real experiences, hands-on learning and access to expert teaching which inspires curiosity to know more about the past. Pupils are encouraged to ask questions and come to their own conclusions by exploring evidence, thinking critically and developing their own perspective and judgement.

It’s not all about the past…

Through our history curriculum, we help pupils to understand the complexities of people’s lives, the process of change, diversity and tolerance as well as enabling children to gain a sense of their own identity within a social, political, cultural and economic background.  It feeds their aspirations as they grow older- Will they be archaeologists? Or museum curators? Or palaeontologists?

Marwell class visited the Watercress Line to look at trains from the past then built their own during discovery time.

Even in our village…

Owslebury itself is steeped in its own unique history. We are lucky to have an archaeologist as a member of our governing body.
