Schools

I have been working with schools in the Bristol region for the past 20 years.

 

Over this time I have developed and delivered high quality workshops for classes both in school and at venues such as Bristol Zoo and Bristol Museum. I continue to facilitate and deliver many outdoor sessions enabling classes to go hunting for fossils, sweep netting for insects and exploring nature. I work for Lighting Up Learning as a senior associate. 

 

Recently, I ran the three year schools' programme for the Bristol Dinosaur Project based at the University of Bristol. And was part of Natural England's Natural Connections Project in Bristol, supporting schools and providers with learning in the natural environment. 

 

I work independently, supporting schools by delivering training at the University of Bristol and the University of Bath. I work with staff and postgraduate students enabling them to learn how to approach schools and develop and deliver sessions.

 

Also, for the University of Bristol, I take schools out to go sweepnetting on the Downs in Bristol and bring them back to dissect squid in a brand new teaching laboratory in the School of Biosciences. Each June I help deliver a fieldtrip for undergraduate students which involves training students to lead a tour to primary-age classes around the University's Botanic Gardens.
