Until August 2018, I was an upper key stage 2 teacher and Maths leader at a large primary school. I have now joined the NFU Education team and I am very excited to be launching our new range of project-based schemes of STEM teaching: Farming STEMterprise.

BENEFITS OF FARMING STEMTERPRISE:
• High quality, practical Science planning that delivers National Curriculum objectives in a real life context.
• Increased engagement in Maths through meaningful, real life tasks.
• Financial literacy embedded into curriculum teaching.
• Improved understanding of nutrition and food provenance.
• An age-appropriate introduction to business concepts.
• Opportunities for team-work, problem-solving and public speaking skill development.

WHAT TEACHERS THINK ABOUT FARMING STEMTERPRISE:
“A wonderful, wide range of activities that involved the children throughout and allowed them to develop their own ideas.”
“This is a fantastic project which we thoroughly enjoyed. I would strongly recommend it for increasing Maths engagement.”
“A brilliant project from start to finish. All the children were engaged throughout.”
