We're running an event for teachers at our Allerton Project farm to demonstrate how visiting a working farm can enhance pupils’ learning across all curriculum areas but in particular geography and the STEM subjects.
The Allerton Project is at the cutting edge of agriculture and aims to combine the best of modern farming practices with wildlife conservation.
We have ten school visits already planned for this year. During these visits the children will spend the day at the farm learning about food production, wildlife and renewable energy, covering a wide range of topics in the curriculum including geography, history, maths and science. Most importantly the children will enjoy themselves.
If you would like to attend the event for teachers on 18th May at the Allerton Project in Leicester please contact Bobbie Harvey, East Midlands Education Coordinator, FACE on 01433 631983 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
