Our History Curriculum

"The more you know about the past,
the better prepared you are for the future."

Theodore Roosevelt

Our History Intent - 2020-21

Ogbourne CofE Primary school acknowledges the value History has in connecting various subjects and cultures; as well as allowing our children to understand their place in the world.

We aim to offer a high-quality history education that will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past locally and internationally.

Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups.

 It also helps children gain a sense of cultural capital for their own understanding of identity across social, political, and economic backgrounds. Because of this, we feel it is important for the subject to be taught discretely as well as incorporated within other curriculum subjects such as English and Art.
