National Civil War Centre
The World Turned Upside Down and Fake News

FREE Local History teacher training day

Tuesday 3rd March, 9.30am-4pm

When planning a local history project, it can be difficult to know where to look for resources.  The National Civil War Centre – Newark Museum has teamed up with the Heritage Schools Programme at Historic England to do some of that preparation for you.  During this one-day workshop on teaching local history and geography, we will provide resources and suggest activities to help develop a broad, rich and deep curriculum in your school.

Learn how to:

  • Use historical maps to explore the story of your locality with your pupils
  • Follow four easy steps to plan a heritage project
  • Enhance and widen your curriculum with cross curricular opportunities
  • Spot architectural features to help your children find the age of a building
  • Achieve the Heritage Schools Award

In the afternoon, participants will get to know about heritage partners who can help you with your project and understand how Newark Museum can be used as a great resource for your school. You'll also take part in a heritage trail where you'll be able to put the skills and knowledge that you have learnt into practice.

All teachers will receive a free map and aerial photo pack of the local area.

For those who book early, £120 will be available to cover any costs.
