Why not pop along (virtually) to our first Primary Humanities Network meeting of this academic year?


Just a handful of the ‘concluding comments‘ from attendees at our last virtual Primary Humanities Network meeting:

‘Thank you for another really useful session.  Lots of ideas and things to work on again.’

‘Thanks for another great course, the fieldwork ideas were really useful and the case studies are perfect examples.’

‘Thank you again for today’s course.  So many useful ideas!’

‘Thank you, once again, for the informative session this afternoon.  I would also love to be kept in the loop about future sessions you might run virtually.  My school is in Manchester, so it is a bit out of the way, but I would love to join some more of your sessions on Zoom if you are running them in the next academic year.’ 

‘Thank you once again for the brilliant Primary Humanities Network meeting.  I love how much ground you have covered in a relatively short amount of time and it has pointed me in the direction of lots of useful resources and journals.’

‘Thanks again for a very useful session.  I have been able to overhaul our geography curriculum over the past few months thanks to your sessions.  As always, today’s session has been extremely useful in directing me towards informative resources, and I really appreciate majority of them are free (as you know schools have a very limiting budget!).  I always leave the meetings desperate to implement something you have introduced to us.’

‘I have been really panicking about taking on geography in my school as it needs lots of development, but this is so helpful.  Thank you!’

‘Thank you for the great ideas again today.  I found the last session really useful, and this one too!’

‘I’ve learnt so much this afternoon and it’s given lots of ideas how to develop things across my school.  Thank you.’

‘A great help; thanks everyone.  So glad you got in touch via Facebook too.  Thanks.’

‘Useful; informative; helpful; much needed.’

‘A very informative session with lots of ideas and things to investigate.  I feel motivated to explore the links and ideas further.’

‘Informative; helpful; supportive; cross-curricular; reassuring.’

‘Excellent, informative ideas to create a strong geography and history intent, based on journals, research and experience!  Thank you.’

‘Practical; supportive; informative; inspirational and great for networking.  Really happy that you are going to offer online/recorded sessions.  Will be so helpful.  Thank you so much, Emma.’

‘Supportive; comprehensive; motivating.’

‘Thank you for today’s session.  Informative and very useful!  So many brilliant ideas with regards to geography fieldwork that I will now try to implement in school.  I’m pleased to hear that you will continue with the online courses – there is nothing like this available in Nottinghamshire!  Thanks again, Emma.’

‘I thoroughly enjoyed the session and learnt a huge amount.  Many thanks.’

‘So many great ideas.  Thank you.’

‘Great take away ideas.  Thank you.’

‘Inspiring; helpful; supportive; clear; concise.’

‘This has been brilliant; the support was perfect timing as new History Lead.’

‘Thank you, a wonderful session.  Please let me know when your next webinar is, I am learning so much from them.’

‘The session was interesting, informative, useful and thought-provoking.’

‘Thank you for the training that you delivered yesterday.  It was fantastic.  I was able to take so many ideas on board from you and the other teachers.  Look forward to more sessions with you.’

‘I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the Primary Humanities Network meeting yesterday.  New to coordinating geography it gave me an opportunity to sit back and think about what my next steps would be.  There was so much useful information which I am looking forward to delving into a little more over the summer and getting my head around.  I definitely feel that your meetings are going to become an important part of my subject coordination – thank you.’

‘I hope today’s meeting went well.  Apologies again that I could not attend live.  Thank you for sending over the recording.  It’s much appreciated.  I’ll have a read through the blog also.  Thank you again for these meetings.  They are very useful!’

‘Thank you for the zoom recording.  Another really useful session, lots to think about.’

‘Thank you very much for the training you did last week.  It was very useful as I am starting my role as Geography Subject Leader.’ 

‘I have only just got round to watching the most recent network meeting and I wanted to say a big thank you for once again making the content so interesting and useful.  I’m looking forward to feeding the ideas back to the staff at my school.’


Feedback from the last couple of Primary Humanities Network meetings  (https://create2inspire.co.uk/2020/06/18/term-6s-primary-humanities-network-meeting-goes-virtual-once-again-and-well-beyond-gloucestershire/ and https://create2inspire.co.uk/2020/07/15/virtual-primary-humanities-network-meeting-term-6-taking-learning-outside-the-classroom/)  revealed that many would like support on ‘assessing progress in both geography and history‘, including an element of moderation of pupils’ work.

Thus, our next meeting will take these as foci and is scheduled to be held virtually on Friday 25th September, 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 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 very familiar with Zoom already).

Do let me know if you wish to attend by Friday 18th September 2020 (e-mail: emma.espley@gmail.com).

Hope Term 1 gets off to a positive start!
