Diversity In History
This episode examines diversity within the History curriculum. What is it? Why is it important? How can we make sure that when we teach History we reflect a diversity of perspectives?
With help from Karin Doull and Paul Bracey, we explore these big questions. A helpful episode for all teachers, those with a responsibility for curriculum-design are those who simply have an interest in the past!
Author and Illustrator David Litchfield
This episode features our first ever author/illustrator guest, and it is the wonderfully talented David Litchfield; author of many beautiful books including 'The Bear and the Piano'. In our interview we find out more about the man behind the books, as well as gaining a fascinating insight into his sources of inspiration and the processes behind the books we love. A must listen for anyone interested in children's literature.
PSHE & RSE with Lucy Marcovitch

Representation In Children's Literature
It is so important to ensure there is diverse representation in the books we offer our young people.

In Episode 21, we are joined by two great minds from education: Daisy Christodoulou and Clare Sealy.
