The study of History is the beginning of wisdom. – Jean Bodin.
History helps us understand the world we live in today; as Marcus Garvey said “A people without the knowledge of their past, origin and culture is like a tree without routes.”
At Orley Farm we aim to inspire our pupils with the events, people and inventions that have shaped the modern world. Pupils learn to research, question, communicate and make sense of the complexities of Great Britain and its place in the world. Our goal is for all pupils to be fascinated by the past and to be prepared to be successful adults who will make a positive difference to the communities they live and work in.

Year 5 travelled back in time to explore the Tudor era this week by handling a range of artefacts. They loved trying on Tudor costumes, handling New World discoveries and exploring a range of medical and educational supplies. #OFScuriosity pic.twitter.com/uQDA2lGNhx

Some of our amazing Year 6 children have had their historical fiction shortlisted to be published by Young Writers publishers in their series called ‘Ancient Adventures.’ Well done to these budding Historians and authors! #OFScreativity pic.twitter.com/RpPiIZ43vc

Thank you to Matt @sir_teachalot for educating and entertaining our Year 3 children at their Roman Workshop yesterday – the laughter from St. George’s Hall could be heard all around the school. The pupils will now demonstrate their learning back in the classroom. #OFScuriosity pic.twitter.com/wVnesCDLzJ
