Here at Burscough Village Primary School, we aim to arouse interest of the past, seeing it as real, live and interesting. During the early years the children are introduced to the recent past, relating to the lifestyles or parents and grandparents in the local area. As the children progress through the school they learn about significant people, events and places from both the recent and more distant past. Children have the opportunity to ask questions and research answers for themselves in their history topics. They learn about past events and that history can be seen by different people in different ways at different times.
