We are very excited to be working with the Peterborough Linking Programme, who launched their linking partnership with TLN earlier this year. The Peterborough Linking Programme is led by Vivacity; an independent, not-for-profit organisation with charitable status, who manage many of Peterborough’s most popular culture and leisure venues on behalf of Peterborough City Council.
The 2020 Peterborough linking year began with a full training day for the linking teachers in February. The linking year was off to a great start; the teachers at CPD1 were all incredibly enthusiastic. Such a let down to have to pause everything so early on, due to Covid19. We had 8 classes signed up, with possibly two more to link. Each linking pair had a name of an important figure in Peterborough’s past. This provided the children with something they could learn about together, as well as increasing their pride in the city’s past, -plus it provided a useful name for the venues and coach company so they knew they had the correct linked pair! We are fortunate enough to have a digital timeline of the city where the children can read about the figures, which is a great resource to share with the classes and we are looking forward to picking up where we left off, next year.
TLN are very pleased to be working with Peterborough’s teachers. We have a great year of virtual linking ahead for our young people in 2020-21 and can’t wait to share it with you!
