new for September 2018!

The workshops can be tailored to your time allocation and children's age.

The number of workshops you book is flexible.  In some cases, it is better to run them for a term or even the entire school year.  This can improve continuity of learning about growing, nurturing and nutrition as well as how to plan for seasonal changes and annual growing calendars.

In my experience, this will add most value as part of curriculum nature or science lessons.  I’m happy to discuss the individual requirements of your school with you.

Age groups

All workshops are aimed at Early Years and primary school children.

Group sizes

The hands-on nature of these workshops requires smaller group sizes of up to about 10-15 children at any time

School Assistants

The workshops need 1 assistant person from schools for EY and KS1 for practical reasons. Most KS2 children will be able to carry out all the tasks themselves so school assistance for KS2 is optional.

Hours and agreed programme

Please see detailed proposal for workshops under the separate tabs for different themes.

Prep and tidy up

Please note that, normally, one hour is needed for each workshop for prep and tidy up. There may be additional prep time for more complex projects. I will inform you about this prior to your booking.

Tools

I can bring some basic tools with me to use at a workshop. We will discuss availability of tools and resources on our planning visit.

Payment

Charges are £40 per hour for each workshop (plus prep and tidy up time). Payment can be made by bank transfer. I will e-mail you an invoice with bank details.

Materials

There is an additional charge for materials (agreed with schools in advance). I can supply more unique or difficult to get materials and invoice your school accordingly.
