About this CPD event

This free CPD event is a great opportunity for primary school teachers to find out how heritage sites like Kensington Palace can encourage children's imaginative engagement with its stories to support literacy learning.

Katie Myles, Primary Teacher Advisor at CLPE, will share how the historic space can be used to develop language skills focused on reasoning, explaining and describing and inspire children's writing with links to high quality children’s literature.

Teachers will also have the opportunity take part in a tour of the palace, led by a costumed presenter, to hear about how a palace visit can offer a rich environment for purposeful talk to inspire writing and to learn more about our literacy programme.

Delegates will:

  • Understand how a visit to a historic site can stimulate literacy learning
  • Find out how the historic site can help to engage children with particular texts
  • Receive practical tools and techniques for continuing learning back in the classroom
  • Enjoy the opportunity to network with colleagues
  • Join the HRP Teachers network

Refreshments available.
