Alresford Agricultural Show Society are supporting a CPD event for local teachers (who have never been to a working farm) to answer the question:
Why take pupils on a working farm?
This event is FREE to attend and the Show Society have pledged £50 per school to help with supply costs.
Two representatives from each school are invited to come and enjoy a locally sourced brunch and discover how the working farm can be a safe and memorable learning environment for pupils. The event will demonstrate how your pupils’ learning can be enhanced by a single visit. To find out more get in touch or download a flyer. Be warned, places are limited!
