Welwyn Hatfield

We Can Handle This – Teacher CPD event

Date: Tuesday 11 January 2022
Time: 16:00 – 17:30
Place: Online

This interactive, online CPD workshop, for primary school teachers, will explore skills, techniques and confidence building in object handling to enhance your classroom learning. Focusing on newly developed resource boxes from Mill Green Museum, in Hatfield, this session aims to demonstrate how objects can support cross curricular learning, pupil investigation, building historical connections with the local area and creating community links.

Object handling can assist learners in creating meaningful connections with classroom topics by looking at objects, thinking about what they have seen and using their imagination as to where their discoveries might lead them.

This 90 minute session will take place online via Zoom. The session is designed to work with 2–3 teachers from each school working together in their classroom.

Each school will be offered the opportunity to book a free loan box after the event.

During the session there will be:

  • An introduction to Mill Green Museum and Welwyn Roman Baths and the learning opportunities at these spaces
  • A practical session focusing on how object handling can support classroom learning
  • An introduction to the newly developed Roman, Toy and STEAM resource boxes
  • An introduction to Artsmark and the benefits of becoming an Artsmark school

After the session:

We will share the PowerPoints shown during the CPD and offer the opportunity to borrow one of the three resource boxes free of charge.
