Explore, Discover, Be Inspired
Free CPD opportunity for teachers and trainee teachers.
Thursday 7th June 2018
2pm to 5pm 27 Minster Yard, Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln
How to become a Heritage Awarded School
This practical session will give you the chance to explore the history of the area using maps and aerial photographs from our archives. We will show you how to trace changes in the historic landscape and give you a step by step guide on how to carry out a local history study using census data, trade directories and free websites. You’ll be able to research a street near your school and find out who lived there and what life was like. It’s easy once you know how!
We will give you the tools to enable you to carry out enquiry based learning activities based around a local heritage site, and showcase many of the school resources we have developed that are specific to your area and tailored to the new History Curriculum.
Teachers will receive a teaching pack at the end of the day which contains a set of maps and photos, a How To guide, access to 100s of free resources from our members only website, a downloadable local time line and a set of goodies for the classroom.
“Our Heritage Schools programme aims to help school children develop an understanding of their local heritage and its significance. The programme has been running since September 2012 in eight regions across England, and since April 2015 the opportunity is being offered to all state schools, both primary and secondary” Kate Argyle, Historic England.
This is also an opportunity to find out more about the exciting future for school visits at Lincoln
Cathedral once the new Learning Centre is open. Find out how you can be involved in the programme development.
