WHY WE STUDY hISTORY AT OUR LADY OF LOURDES
In O.L.O.L we believe that History is about the study of the past. What occurred in the past influences all aspects of our lives and therefore it promotes in our pupils an understanding of the human condition and develops within them a wider perspective in which to view their own society and their world. As they study the past our pupils will learn to appreciate the human achievements and aspirations, which have shaped the present. It will help them to make sense of the world they live in.
World War One Centenary Remembrance
During the month of November, we have commemorated the World War One Centenary by carrying out a variety of activities in our year groups. We have held special Collective Worship sessions, assemblies and some pupils have attended a Remembrance service with children from other local primary schools. At Our Lady of Lourdes we have shown reverance and respect to those who gave their lives fighting in different conflicts around the world. Take a look at the amazing work we have produced!
YEAR 4 TRIP TO CHESTER TO STUDY THE ROMANS.
As part of their Attack and Defend topic, Year 4 visited the city of Chester to learn more about the Romans. They took part in different workshops, where they were able to investigate and examine various artefacts. They also were lucky enough to visit the amphitheatre and act as traditional Roman soldiers, learning different defensive formations. They had a super time and thoroughly enjoyed their trip!
year 2 Great Fire of London.
As part of their topic studying the Great Fire of London, Year 2 has a visit from the local fire brigade. In order to understand the devastation this fire caused the children created a replica of 1666 London using cardboard and paper, which was then safely set alight. They couldn’t believe how quickly the fire spread and felt very thankful that we have the resource of the fire brigade available to us in an emergency.
