Afternoon all!

We're thinking of putting together a Northern History Network next year and I am just putting out some feelers to see if schools would be interested. The London History Network is a great example of how regional teachers can work together, especially now Local Authority networks are disintegrating.

It would be organised by my own school and another school here in Kirklees (the Huddersfield area) and open to schools from anywhere to join in. We're planning to have four meetings a year, with high quality input/workshops at each one and lots of resource swapping.

The outline meeting schedule for next year is:

1) The EBacc effect: engagaging reluctant Historians at KS4

2) Developing projects with your partner primaries

3) History and ICT

4) New ideas from the conferences & a presentation by Mike Maddison HMI, National Adviser for History


If you/your schools would be interested in knowing more, please drop me a line on here and I'll get back to you with further details.

Donald

I'm sure I'd get permission to pop over from Manchester. It would depend on times but I'd love to find out more.
There is a light and it never goes out.

I am a proper northerner as I can be found in Durham. I would definately be interested in being part of a Northern History Network as I find SHP conference is the only time I get to talk to other history teachers face to face!

Sounds like a great idea - I don't know if coming from Wakefield makes me northern enough, but I am sure we could get at least Four Yorkshire together to promote our case.

I hope the summer has treated everyone well and results are generally great tomorrow!

Just seeing if anyone else was interested in coming along to the NHN meetings we're putting together. Just drop me a line if you'd like to know more - it should be great!

I have attached the flyer with details of the plan and so on - it would be lovely if you could make it along. The more the merrier! The National Archives/ICT workshop has just been confirmed too for the March date. And Huddersfield is just a short M62 away from Liverpool too...!

:-)

If anyone would like to know more just drop me a line

I'd be happy to attend if free on those dates (Monday is for meetings, but I could try to be persuasive), and I'm sure one of my department would. We are based in Calderdale.

Dear fellow northern Historians,

I have added a booking form to the flyer (which would probably help!) and apologise if you have emailed me - we are experiencing some 'technical difficulties' at this end it seems..! However, the booking form should have all the details you need.


There is also another way of accessing the info as a website now exists:
http://northernhisto...k.edublogs.org/

Cheers - looking forward to seeing you at the first meeting,
Donald

I'd be really really interested in this, not least because I can be home from Holmfirth in an hour and a half. ;)

I will speak to my SLT tomorrow and let you know.
