“The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.” - Theadore Roosevelt


The history curriculum at Olga broadens children’s view of the world and its past to enable them to understand the present and how both are connected. It helps children to develop their research skills and critical-thinking skills so that they are equipped as active, global citizens.



Olga’s history curriculum is based on the requirements set out in the National Curriculum. It has been developed with particular reference to our school community which has supported high levels of engagement and interest. Our history curriculum is bespoke and includes a significant number of experiences including trips, interviews, visitors and the use of primary resources.


History Exhibition:

At Olga, we learn about the lives of people from a huge variety of backgrounds and cultures and, in the Autumn term, we learn in greater detail, the history of people of colour. 

In November we held an exhibition so that children and families could come and see the children's work. The evening was hosted by our history ambassadors from Y6 who were able to guide our visitors around the school and explain the exhibits.


Here are some quotes from the children:

"I thought it was really interesting and important learning about the history of Africa - it wasn't something I knew lots about before." Y4 child.

"We can use what we learned here to help us today to appreciate people and to not discriminate against them." Y3 child.

"Carnival started a s a parade after some people were treated badly." Y1 child.
