Teacher Training Workshop - 6th May 2016 at Norfolk Showground

21/01/2016   Jenni

In 2015 we ran a series of projects that are collectively called Lunchbox Science in partnership with the national organisation Farming and Countryside Education (FACE).The projects used the SAW model of practical science, creative writing and visual arts to explore the links between science and agriculture.

Each project focused on one ingredient Lunchbox logo final 15 04 2015from a typical lunchbox and was designed by a research scientist working in collaboration with a professional artist and a professional writer.  The projects were trialled in Norfolk Primary Schools with Key Stage 2 children in the summer term 2015 and the schools were then invited to present the outcomes of their projects at the Royal Norfolk Show.

Since then we have been transforming the projects into a series of lesson plans to enable teachers to run them as 'in house' activities.  To launch the lesson plans we are running a one-day teacher training workshop at the Royal Norfolk Showground on Friday 6th May 2016.  The workshop will be a mix of presentations and hands-on activities to enable teachers to have a go at the practical elements of the projects.

Lesson plans will be available on the day and then from the FACE Countryside Classrooms and SAW website.

Workshop places cost £120 per teacher and are available to book by contacting jenni.rant@jic.ac.uk
