Tuesday 10th Jan 2023, 15.45 – 16.45: Inspiring Literacy through History
Are you looking for interesting new ways to motivate pupils to write? This CPD will give you great ideas for using museum objects to fire imaginations and inspire writing, while developing pupils’ historical skills and knowledge.
Work with Middlesbrough-based children’s author, Gabrielle Kent, to get your own creative juices flowing as she shares skills and practical ideas for writing inspired by objects.
Whether you’re looking for novel ways to produce poetry, purposeful ideas for using fronted adverbials or just ideas to develop positive attitudes and stamina for writing, this session will be an hour well spent.

Tuesday 17th Jan 2023, 15.45 – 16.45: Finding the history in your neighbourhood
Do you know your Edwardian windows from your Victorian? Do you know where to look for the clues on buildings, parks or roads that help tell significant local stories? The history (and geography) on our doorsteps is often the most relevant to us, but the easiest to overlook.
Join us for a fascinating session that will boost your skills and knowledge in ‘how to read’ buildings and other features in your area. Meet Sarah Gouldsbrough from Head of Steam who has been working with teachers to create their own local heritage walks and Jean Banwell from Land of Iron who will explore ways of using local maps and archival photos. They will be joined by Viki Angel from Heritage Schools, who will share her experience in helping schools focus on the history of their neighbourhood.
