An interactive Saturday session discovering a range of classroom ready active learning strategies in food and nutrition.

Description

Join Wendy and discover a range of classroom-ready active learning strategies in food and nutrition. Working with local teaching professionals, learn more about how to engage, challenge and stretch pupils with resources around healthy eating, cooking (food science) and where food comes from. Make cheese and frothy milk, consider the impact of portion sizes using practical examples, identify food chains and much more!

What will be covered?

  • Cooking (food science) – simple, inexpensive and enjoyable activities to help pupils understand and relate to what is happening in their food and drink.
  • Healthy eating – classroom ready activities that use practical examples to highlight up to date nutrition advice, demonstrate the impact of portion sizes and the nutrient content of a variety of foods.
  • Where food comes from – can the pupils identify the various food chains? What can you make with leftovers? What about using food commodities in season?
  • Links to Food – a fact of life resources, support and training.

Why attend?

  • Experience a range of active learning strategies that cover a variety of learning intents.
  • Network with local teaching professionals.
  • Signposts to free editable resources for use in the classroom will be highlighted.
