CPD Event for Primary School Teachers: From Stone Age to Iron Age

Calling all Oxford primary teachers! Have you been asked to teach Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age for the first time and don't know where to start? Or even if you gave it a go last year but want some ideas to liven it up this year, then Kim Biddulph of Schools Prehistory is running an afternoon workshop at the Pitt Rivers Museum on 22nd September from 1.00 - 4.30 pm.

Kim has been a museum educator for fifteen years, and has worked in schools, museums and heritage sites. Her specialism is in the prehistory of Britain so she will run through a timeline and an overview of the major changes that happened during this period, to help you think about planning a block of work as well as bring in lots of handling objects to help you get the feel of the period. She'll get you to try out some activities that could help bring the topic to life in school, like making your own pigment or making replica Bronze Age axes out of chocolate. Kim has been working with us to develop a new workshop that will be available to book after October half-term, and you get to see a sneaky peek at all our fab resources.

For only £40 for the afternoon, with a free 2-metre timeline and booklet of information, resources and links thrown in for free, you can't afford to miss it!
