Feedback from our previous Primary Humanities Network meeting on Wednesday 17th June 2020 (https://create2inspire.co.uk/2020/06/18/term-6s-primary-humanities-network-meeting-goes-virtual-once-again-and-well-beyond-gloucestershire/) revealed that many would like support on ‘taking learning outside the classroom‘, including ideas for developing geographical skills and fieldwork and local history studies.
Thus, our next meeting will take these as foci and is scheduled to be held virtually on Wednesday 15th July, from 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm.
The charge will be just £25.00 and you will receive a recording of the event, as well as a copy of the accompanying MS PowerPoint presentation.
I will lead the session via Zoom and will send you an invitation with a password to insert prior to entering the meeting.
As I have invested in a subscription to Zoom, I have access to the extra controls to ensure that it is as safe and secure as possible. This is a platform that is used by a huge number of businesses and organisations (some of you may well be familiar with Zoom already).
Do let me know if you wish to attend by Friday 10th July (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Take care and stay healthy in these very challenging times.
