CPD Session for Teachers and Teaching Assistants

Tuesday 5th March 2019

Sailor, Courtier, MP for Lymington and Philanthropist, Admiral Sir Harry Burrard Neale (1765 - 1840), was important in in the history of Lymington, playing a key role in the Naval campaigns that kept the French from invading Britain, and in the care of King George III in his periods of 'madness'. On his death in 1840, the population of Lymington raised funds to build the Walhampton Monument, the obelisk now visible from the High Street. Heritage Lottery Funding was secured to restore the monument and to raise the profile of Sir Harry through public events and projects, including a collaboration with Pennington Infant School - Sir Harry's Life and times as a catalyst for Key Stage 1 learning.

Matthew Butcher, KS1 lead for the school will lead the session to demonstrating opportunities for KS1 learning including:

• History - events, places and significant individuals who have contributed to national and International achievements.

• English - reading, writing, vocabulary, comprehension, transcription and composition

• Design and Technology - creating functional, appealing products, generating, developing and communicating ideas through discussion, drawing and models

• Making - selection and use of tools, materials and components.

Matthew will share his approach to lesson design, and topic plans with examples and of pupils’ work and photographs of the activities, followed by Q&A session to further explore particular aspects of the learning, activities and practicalities.

‘Every year, our Year 2 pupils love learning about the life of Sir Harry Burrard Neale. As a unit of work his life provides a fascinating range of links. We have been able to hook into all curriculum areas, including English, D.T., history, geography and art. It is rare to find such an immersive topic that links so naturally to a nationally significant figure, who is also so directly linked to our own locality.’ Matthew Butcher
