About this opportunity:
Do you remember the thrill of finding your first ladybird? As part of the RSPB's aim to connect as many children as possible to nature we'll be descending on primary schools ready to deliver our inspiring outreach sessions. They're designed to give teachers and their pupils all the support they need to explore the natural world around them. The sessions are fun and interactive, allowing plenty of opportunities for first-hand experiences of nature whether it be bug hunting, birdwatching or finding daisies. We're looking for volunteers with a real passion for enthusing children about the natural world to play a key part in this project. Following a period of shadowing the Schools Outreach Officer we'd ask you to take the lead on delivering three different workshops with classes of children (age range between 5-12yrs). These workshops are aimed at inspiring them to get close up to what creeps, crawls and flies in their school grounds. Teachers would be present at all times. Tasks will include: ? Leading on delivering our standardised learning activities to primary school children ? each of the three workshops last 90 minutes and focuses predominantly on learning outdoors. ? Inspiring children about wildlife, facilitating their learning during activities. ? Assisting with equipment and resource maintenance as necessary ? Regularly checking and responding to emails as this will be our primary method of communicating with you and for sending school requests through to you. ? Assisting with feedback and evaluation. PLEASE NOTE: This opportunity will require PVG membership. P
