Farm­ing Fortnight

Farm­ing Fort­night (3rd to 14th June 2019), devel­oped by LEAF Edu­ca­tion in part­ner­ship with Brock­hill Park Per­form­ing Arts Col­lege in Kent, will see hun­dreds of pri­ma­ry and sec­ondary schools across the UK shine a light on farm­ing, what it deliv­ers and the many and var­ied career oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able in the sector.

View and down­load the Farm­ing Fort­night resources

A wide range of engaging national curriculum linked resources and materials have been developed for schools to download. Topic sheets, lesson plans, case studies and videos will explore different farming sectors and support teachers in delivering inspiring lessons around food and farming.

Each day of the campaign has its own farming theme and accompanying social media hashtag – ranging from arable farming (#TractorTuesday), the sheep industry (#WoollyWednesday) through to fruit and vegetable production (#TastyTuesday) to careers in farming (#FutureFarming). Schools and students will be encouraged to share their learning experiences on social media.
