The project delivers a full day training workshop for Year 3 teachers (with some possible places for school music leads) to explore the use of ‘Meadowsong’ alongside the RSPB’s Wild Challenge award scheme. This is a rich arts and science based programme that includes a quality experience of nature for children. It is designed with the same ambition for all children. Feedback from participants suggests that the resource works especially well for children that are from disadvantaged backgrounds or SEND. The workshop outlines a flexible, cross-curricular programme that can be easily adapted to local needs and requirements and provide the necessary resources for teachers to deliver this independently.
We are offering this training and resources FREE in collaboration with Local Educational Authorities around the country. The one day training will be open to all Y3 teachers in each borough. The collaboration involves training and resources to be delivered by us at a local venue, ideally provided by the Local Educational Partnership.
The training will happen in Spring 2020 allowing teachers to integrate their learning into their delivery this academic year. This will culminate in a performance alongside the planting of a mini wildflower habitat. Resources can be used to the full or as a foundation for teachers to explore their own ideas. It’s full of possibilities!
We would love teachers to take this in their own directions, developing their own and their children’s active citizenship.
