“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”
Our History Intent
At Overchurch Infant School, we want children to develop an interest in the past, which arouses their curiosity and motivation to learn. As Historians, children gain knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world and advance their chronological understanding. Children learn about the history of Upton and their local area, and are able to describe the similarities and differences between then and now. We ultimately want children to enjoy and love learning about history by gaining knowledge and skills, not just through experiences in the classroom, but also with the use of fieldwork and educational visits.
