Hi, I'm Owlbut! Welcome to my World of Learning!

As you may know the economic and logistical effects of COVID-19 has meant we have had to postpone our planned journey for this year. We will now set out in September 2021.

The main static part of our site remains as it was with a dedicated history of England section (Times Past), a section giving info about every country in the world (now renamed The World) and a part (Your Turn) with projects for children to do at home or in school.

In order to maintain some new weekly material on the site each week, we have two new uploads. Each Monday, at 10.00pm GMT, we will add a video podcast introduction to a separate period of our Times Past section. The uploads will occur chronologically and take into account English school holidays. The dates can be found here. Once these finish, at the end of April 2021, we will then update the figures for the countries in the The World section. These will also appear each Monday for seven weeks, continent by continent, starting with Europe, on 10th May 2021.

Then, each Friday at 10.00am GMT, we will upload some information and fun facts about a new county, or set of counties, on our English counties page.
