Autumn 2013 Schools Programme
Following a summer of creating learning resources and workshop design, we are excited to offer four Key Stage 1-4 school sessions that are now available for booking.
The HLF project, New Perspectives, welcomes new audiences to explore social history through the archives, specifically using the collection of the National Union of Women Teachers. Each workshop takes a hands-on approach and includes active citizenship; historical investigations; and visual, oral, and written activities to deliver engaging sessions linked to the National Curriculum. Workshops and activities are offered for:
Schools and college groups; students at PRUs; youth groups; visits from home educated children.
And the four workshops on offer…
Clever Campaigners: Then & Now
KS 1/2 Half Day or Full Day Workshop
Using the IOE’s NUWT archive collection, students investigate the strategies and tactics of a historical campaign and get inspired to create their own. As students explore how campaigning has changed over the past century, they begin their own 21st century campaign, deciding what they would most like to change about the world.

Campaign! Make an Impact
KS 3/4 Half Day or Full Day Workshop
Explore a historical campaign as inspiration to create your own! Using the British Library’s Campaign! Make an Impact model, this workshop engages students with original documents in the NUWT archive. Students investigate topics including facets of the NUWT equal pay campaign, social justice, and campaign tactics, while considering how these factors have changed over the past century.

KS 1/2 Half Day Workshop
In this interactive workshop, students take on the role of evidence-hunting historians as they explore the archive and develop their skills of historical enquiry and communication. This workshop is a fun and engaging way to introduce students to primary sources and the role they play in learning about history.

KS 3/4 Half Day Workshop
Taking a hands-on approach with our archive collection, students explore the difference between a primary and secondary source. After investigating original documents in the archive, students become history makers and create their own secondary sources. This session supports pupils’ understanding of how historians use different types of sources to gather evidence about the past.
