(’Concluding comments’ from attendees at our previous meeting).

Following interest from several schools/individuals, I have recently established a Primary Humanities Subject Leaders’ Network for local teaching professionals.  It is intended to meet one afternoon each term (please feel free to bring your lunch with you if necessary).  Each meeting will aim to focus on a particular aspect of history and/or geography, determined very much by the needs/desires of the group.

Our third session of this academic year will take the theme of ‘Planning a cross-curricular themed day/week (taking into account the revised Ofsted Inspection Framework)’. You will be given plenty of tips and inspiration to enable you to create an engaging and impacting day/week for both teachers and pupils in your school, and one that is cost-effective too!  This session will be very ‘hands on’ and provide you with the chance to receive some personalised support.  The aim is to meet from 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm on Friday 1st March 2019 at Gloucester Farmers’ Club, Agriculture House, Greville Close, Sandhurst Road, Gloucester, GL2 9RG.  The cost per head is £35.00, with refreshments provided upon arrival and throughout the afternoon.

Please bring a Wi-Fi enabled laptop/tablet and USB stick with you, along with a copy of your annual whole school curriculum plan and current scheme of work/topic map.

To reserve a place, please contact Emma Espley by e-mail (  Please apply no later than Friday 15th February 2019.

I look forward to seeing some familiar faces, as well as a few new ones too.
