Archiving project Layers of London are holding a free workshop for schools to help them incorporate heritage activities into the curriculum.
The day is aimed at humanities and history teachers from KS1 to KS3 level, looking to turn their institutions into heritage schools or wanting to renew their heritage school status.
There will be guidance and resources on how to develop heritage projects to enhance curriculums, as well as lessons on how to use aerial photographs and historical maps.
The workshop will be hosted by local heritage education manager Helen Spencer and Layers of London’s Amy Todd.
The Layers of London project, which began in Barking and Dagenham, documents the history of London and buildings which no longer exist through an interactive map. Memories and photos compiled from interviews are uploaded onto the map which users can browse online.
The event takes play on May 2 at Valence House from 10am-4pm. To book a place, contact Amy on firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 25th April.
