New event to help support local teachers with museum resources
Here at the Holst Birthplace Museum we are working with a large group of local museums and heritage sites to stage the county’s first cross-curricular resource event. Taking place at Nature in Art in Gloucester on Saturday 22nd April from 10am – 3pm, Gloucestershire’s Curriculum Fair is aimed at teachers from Key Stage 1 upwards. Admission for teachers and their whole family is free of charge for both the fair and Nature In Art and there are children’s activities throughout the day.
Sara Salvidge, Learning Officer at the Holst Birthplace Museum commented:
‘Gloucestershire’s Curriculum Fair is the first time that such a wide group of organisations has come together to support teachers with cross-curricular resources. Our aim is to run an informative and fun day to help teachers to plan and utilise museum and heritage sites resources from across Gloucestershire.’
With drop in sessions throughout the day giving the opportunity to find out more about how to use museum resources and how they address cross-curricular needs, plus access to explore Nature in Art, it’s guaranteed to be a great day out.
