Inspired by the National Gallery’s Take One Picture programme, Take One aims to encourage primary teachers to use historic buildings and archive documents as a springboard for creative cross-curricular work in the classroom.
Bishopsgate Institute has championed Take One in London in partnership with Historic Royal Palaces Education Service since 2009.
Take One is an annual programme. It launches in the autumn term with a Teachers’ CPD Day at Tower of London. On this training day, teachers are introduced to the building or document which will form the basis for the Take One learning programme for the year. Teachers then go back to their schools and implement schemes of work inspired by the document. The project closes with an exhibition of the work produced by the schools involved.

For our Take One document for 2012/13 we have chosen a picture postcard with a street scene of Liverpool Street taken around 1902. The CPD day for teachers was held on 25 October.
