Example workshop plan

BHee workshops are the perfect way to inspire pupils to care for our environment while supporting curriculum objectives. They also make the perfect ‘treat’ for a hard-working Eco Committee or Green Team!

Like all aspects of BHee, our workshops are FREE to local authority-funded schools throughout Brighton and Hove.

All workshops, which are practical and hands-on, are delivered by BHee’s qualified and experienced teacher Katie, who has many years’ experience in environmental education. Sessions are fully risk-assessed, and teachers receive a detailed workshop plan in advance to allow them to make links to other areas of pupils’ learning.

Whether you are planning a science topic for one class, or a Green Week for the whole school, BHee workshops will engage pupils with environmental issues and provide them with memorable learning experiences to equip them for the future.

Currently, BHee workshops focus on three Eco-Schools topics: Biodiversity, Waste and School Grounds. However there are plentiful links to other topics, including Healthy Living, Transport and Litter.

BHee’s biodiversity workshops allow pupils and teachers  to get outside and learn from the richness of their local environment, exploring the South Downs National Park, the beach, a local park, or the grounds of their own school.

These workshops, which usually last half a day, directly support science topics on ‘Living things and their habitats’ and ‘Animals, including humans’, as well as making links with other curriculum areas such as English, art and geography.

News of these new workshops will be available in January 2018.
