A day with a difference, and a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding one at that!
Fortunately, the hot and sunny weather at the weekend decided to hold out a little longer for my meeting at Gloucester Docks/Gloucester Quays with Paul and Max from C&T (http://www.candt.org/).
My task this afternoon was to deliver a twilight training session centred upon ‘taking learning outside the classroom’ for all staff at Abbeymead Primary School on the outskirts of the city of Gloucester.
Maggie Andrews, Professor of Cultural History at the University of Worcester, invited me to speak at a symposium that she was organising, entitled ‘Children in WW1: Histories and engagements’,
It was off to Sir Thomas Rich’s School (STRS) (https://strschool.co.uk/), one of Gloucestershire’s grammar schools, early this morning to meet with Debbie Brake, Assistant Head Teacher and Teaching School Lead. The purpose of my visit was to share outreach opportunities, discuss my recent, local consultancy activities that have been particularly successful and consider how I might be able to support their future developments.
I think Debbie was feeling a little overwhelmed an hour and a half later!
