This half day session will introduce you to how you can enhance teaching across the curriculum using food, farming, farm visits and the many resources available. It will provide an opportunity to see the learning that can be gained from the outdoors and the countryside. Local guest speakers from complementary programmes can be invited to help support schools in this area. During this session we will look at how the programme is structured, the benefits of taking part and also how food contributes to a “healthy school”. Practical ideas will also be given to develop a whole school approach to healthy eating and food.

This session can be adapted as a “twilight” from 3.30pm and can be tailored to suit the requirements of both primary and secondary colleagues.

“The children really enjoyed the tour of the farm and being able to go into the field to see the animals close up; a real chance to get out of the classroom environment and continue learning.”

“It really opened my eyes to see how a farm is run as a multi-million pound business,and to think about all the decisions the farmer has to make, not just what crops to grow.”
