What is a museum? What kinds of objects are in it? What can we see when we look carefully at art? How can objects tell us about people in the past? Pupils encounter highlights from the diverse collection at the Hunt Museum in a fun and accessible way. Pupils will build their observation skills through problem-solving, investigation, drawing, and discussion. In an age-appropriate way, children explore artistic elements such as shape, line, colour, and texture. Children encounter simple historical concepts.
This workshop encourages pupils to thematically explore objects from Ancient Ireland. It enables pupils to investigate and use as evidence our Bronze Age and Ancient Ireland collections on display in the Hunt Museum. The handling of replica prehistoric artefacts will provide additional opportunities for inquiry-led learning. Pupils will also get to try out some simple prehistoric technologies.
Participants on this PDST TiE course will explore a range of digital tools that they can easily integrate into their classroom.

This summer course is delivered as Gaeilge and will be of particular interest to teachers in Irish-medium schools interested in bringing chess to their schools/classrooms and to teachers in English-medium schools who would like to polish their scileanna Gaeilge, whilst learning how to play chess.
Chess for Social Skills is like no other summer course as it is extremely hands-on and teacher-centred. Chess is a growing pastime in Irish primary schools with over 200 schools now joined the Ficheall.ie network of teachers promoting chess in primary schools. It is an excellent hobby for students (and teachers) for rainy days and promotes a variety of social and cognitive skills such as respect, forward planning, problem solving, decision making, accepting defeat, understanding resilience and developing a growth mind-set when exploring a new skill; all of which are explicitly addressed in the free beginner lessons available to participants.
