St Albans Museums and St Albans Cathedral Learning Department are delighted to offer a thought-provoking day of development activities and curriculum conversations with primary humanities curriculum leaders.

Designed and delivered in partnership with Educational Consultant Christine Lloyd-Staples this day will identify key possibilities as you review your curriculum and consider changes brought in by the new Ofsted framework.

There will be the chance to review learning opportunities with Eleanor Payne from St Albans Museums and Steve Clarke from St Albans Cathedral Learning Department as well as gain an overview on how to approach a review of your primary history curriculum in preparation for the new Ofsted with Christine Lloyd-Staples.

The day will focus upon the teaching of local history at KS1 and KS2. Topics covered will include:

• ‘Hands-on’ approaches and the use of artefacts

• Examples of significant people from the local area

• Characteristics of effective approaches to teaching and learning about local history, together with a bank of ideas for developing pupils’ skills, knowledge and understanding of local history

The day will commence at St Albans Cathedral with a morning of workshops followed by lunch. The afternoon sessions will be at St Albans Museum + Gallery.

Please note the venues are seven minutes apart across cobbled streets; if you have any access requirements please note this as part of the booking process.

Whilst the historical settings for this day will use practical examples within the context of St Albans and Hertfordshire, the strategies we will explore are easily transferable. We encourage bookings from schools from across the county and beyond and look forward to welcoming you all.

If you have any questions before making your booking or would like to be invoiced for your place(s), please email Eleanor Payne, [email protected] at St Albans Museums.
