Funding of £500 will allow us to continue to run our forest school for 6 months. Our forest school takes place every fortnight at the Norfolk Showground and we invite families to join us at one of our sessions, Pre-school, Home Educated or SEN children. These sessions help children to choose their own learning path, develop confidence, improve social and communication skills and most importantly independence.
Funding of £1,000 will enable us to support 500 Norfolk school children to visit the Royal Norfolk Show. This funding will be used to ensure the trip is well organised and whilst they are at the Royal Norfolk Show they have the best possible food and farming education.
Alternatively, £2,500 would support one of our Science of Farming events. These events are aimed at 175 year 5 students from schools local to the event and take place in the North, East and centre of the Country. The day consists of 5, 45-minute focused activities which aim to secure and deepen children’s knowledge of food and farming, each activity is 100% hands on and has National Curriculum links. In the past activities have included, a lamb heath check, programming drones, evolution of wheat and PH of soil.
