Event description

Description

Following the success of our first event in November, we are please to invite you to our second Primary Arts Network meeting on 7 February at St Matthews Primary.

The network brings primary teachers together with arts and cultural professionals to stimulate collective problem solving, which will hopefully lead to stronger partnership working between the sectors.

For primary teachers, it is an opportunity to create new relationships with arts organisations alongside a chance to creatively problem solve.

For arts organisations, it is an opportunity to share some of the resources you have available for schools and find out how best to support teachers in the current environment.

Arrivals from 3.45 for light refreshments with a 4pm start.

Each event starts with a short presentation from network members. For our second networking event, Allan Williams from Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse Theatres and Elizabeth O'Hanlon from St Matthews have kindly agreed to present on their partnership. They have been working together for a number of years on a variety of projects, including a project with the English National Ballet, a cross-curricular History, Drama and Literacy exploration of Jacqueline Wilson's Hetty Feather and a variety of theatre tours. Allan has also equipped St Matthew's teachers with a variety of Drama skills for the classroom through CPD sessions.

We will then use an 'unconference' approach to explore any challenges within our curriculum overviews. Please bring along your curriculum maps for the year with any challenging areas highlighted. On the day everyone can choose which conversation they want to be part of; working together in smaller groups to look at areas arts and cultural organisations can help to enhance.

The event will finish at 5pm with an opportunity for informal networking afterwards.
