Friday 6th January 2017

Location : Palmer, 108

Speakers

  1. CLEAPSS

At CLEAPSS primary we design our exciting and safe practicals so that children can do all, or close to all, of the hands-on work for themselves. We seek out disposable equipment to reduce washing up and resource materials that can be found on the high street. Our methods use minimal but effective quantities; there-by reducing risks and mess as much as possible. This means our practicals allow children greater independence, more hands-on experience and more fun! This workshop is a circus of primary practical activities developed by CLEAPSS, which you will be able to try and take away.
