Every wondered what our volunteers do? Meet Carol, one of our education volunteers.
‘Hi, my name is Carol, I have been volunteering for the last 9 months. I have been working on the marvellous map project, using my previous skills to develop talk for learning activities.Talk for learning is a way of encouraging children to look closely at pictures or artefacts from the past through asking questions and taking turns to talk about what they can see, what they think is happening and what they want to find out. Talk cards are used to ensure they take turns and listen to each other.
My favourite bit of the project so far has been helping to fill the resource box with exciting activities to encourage imaginative learning.’
