Linking the new primary science curriculum to outdoor settings

"Cobble Hey Farm near Garstang in Lancashire hosted a seminar considering the Programmes of Study for Primary Science within the NC2014 and how it might be applied to outdoor sessions.
The day allowed teachers and farmers to work alongside one another to plan opportunities within an outdoor setting and realise the potential of a farm visit. This booklet extracts many ideas from the day and presents practical activities for you to try with children either on a visit or within other outdoor settings, even within school grounds.
Throughout the booklet when the word “farm” is used, you can easily substitute “garden”, “park” or outdoor area of any kind. Just adapt the activities to suit your setting!"
