At St Oswald's our pupils develop their history skills through a wide range of topics, trips and experiences.
Our pupils explore chronology, historical enquiry and how to communicate their findings through a range of media.
We believe history is best learned through rich contexts and experiences. In Year 2 our children visit the historical town of Skipton, visiting the medieval castle, in year 3 they visit the Roman town of Ribchester, learning all about Roman life and in Year 6, we explore the events of World War 2 including an evacuee experience.
Here you will find the skills taught in each year group and a get flavour of how history is taught in our school.
