Location: HARBOTTLE SUITE, BLACK GATE, NEWCASTLE CASTLE, NE1 1RQ
Newcastle Castle invites you all to take part in the first of our Local History CPD sessions.
Tyne and Wear has a rich and varied past: invasion and settlement, great inventions, epic feats of heroism and gruesome executions.
DID YOU KNOW:
Newcastle was once amongst the wealthiest towns in England, its wealth from wool, coal and wee!
A great plague befell the city in 1636 and wiped out half the population!
The witch trials of 1650 saw 15 Geordie witches hanged on the Town Moor!
Tyne and Wear oversaw the development of the light bulb, hydro-electricity and the mass produced sausage roll!
Our workshop will focus on aspects of our local history that you might not have considered for a wider local or post 1066 study that have had a massive impact, not just locally but nationally too.
The afternoon will consist of a presentation, workshops and an atmospheric moonlit tour of the castle taking in panoramic views of the Tyne Valley.
AIMS OF THE SESSION:
· Inspire you to look at different areas of local study that will excite and engage your students.
· Increase teacher and student knowledge and awareness of your local area.
· Look at alternative ways of attaining curriculum goals.
We will entertain you throughout the session with tales of Newcastle’s colourful past and give you a flavour of the exciting programme of learning we can offer you too. We might even provide you with liquid nourishment.
If you are interested, would like to book a spot, or both please get in touch with George Blair, Outreach Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 0191 230 6300.
