LEAF Regional Education Consultants can provide suggestions for places to visit, especially farms, and can put teachers in touch with farmers who will go into school. Consultants also offers teacher training and student teacher training about how to use food, farming and the countryside in classroom teaching. Bobbie is an artist and she has an excellent reputation for engaging children and teachers in a wide range of hands-on art activities relating to food, farming and the countryside. She is innovative and inspirational in her work. An example of her work is the Art & Science on the farm programme which involves using creative activities and games to explore minibeasts.
If you have ideas you want to discuss or just need to find out how LEAF Education can help in the East Midlands region, please get in touch with Bobbie. She'll be pleased to help.
