Whose poo? This is the name of just one of 9 specially-designed training courses for primary school and nursery staff at the Great Yorkshire Showground this school term.
Held by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society at our Harrogate showground, the courses are offered completely free of charge as part of our charitable remit.
Here at the Society, we want to inspire new generations of children to develop a love and understanding of farming, food and the countryside. These free teacher training courses form part of that mission.
In this latest series of courses, ‘Whose Poo & Other Clues’ is a brand new addition. Don’t be put off by the title, this is a topic-based workshop that complements the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 curriculum.
Neatly linked to Science, Geography, English, History and PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education), this insightful and fascinating course answers a range of curious questions.
Why does poo protect certain animals?
What makes a healthy stool and why is this important?
And, do you know your otter spraint from your rabbit droppings?
This is a chance to learn many skills and activities that will fire your pupils’ imagination about a taboo topic that ultimately, can teach us so much – so why not click here to book your free place today.
The course will be led by tutor Ruth McBain, who features here in this teaser video about our CPD courses.
