About the Event

Nottinghamshire Creative Schools Network is proud to partner with Papplewick Pumping Station Museum for a CPD event exploring the use of water as a curriculum theme.

Papplewick Pumping Station Museum are able to offer from May 2018 a new day-long Teacher Led (KS2/3) experience at Papplewick.

Papplewick are collaborating in the delivery of this programme with both the University of Nottingham (School of Education) http://www.getwet.org.uk/ and with Dragon Breath Theatre http://www.dragonbreaththeatre.com

The cross curricula approach is based around water. It looks at Papplewick’s local, social and engineering history, and its significance as a site for considering the management of global water resources today.

The Network session will introduce staff to:

The magnificent Papplewick site itself.

The University of Nottingham’s new LearningAbout Water Toolkit. This offers a module supporting the development of a water curriculum alongside a visit to Papplewick.

An already existing extensive online curriculum resource, offering a water based curriculum including English, Science, History, Geography and Maths (http://www.papplewickpumpingstation.org.uk/a-crack-in-time/ )

The new staff led visit to Papplewick, which will be supported by an actor/ interpreter, and by Papplewick volunteers, who will facilitate pupil investigation of the site and water issues.

A short literacy CPD session responding to the site if there is time on the day.

The Mighty Creatives Arts Consultant for Nottinghamshire will be available throughout to answer any questions or provide information for interested schools on Artsmark and Arts Awards.

There will be time built in throughout for discussion, networking and 1:1 conversation.
