BNF launches new remote learning hub to support primary and secondary school pupils learning at home
Food – a fact of life, BNF’s education programme for schools, has today launched a new remote learning hub, the Food – a fact of life (FFL) Classroom.
The FFL Classroom comprises a range of free cross-curricular resources and activities for primary and secondary school pupils studying at home. The resources cover seven learning approaches:
- everyday learning;
- finding out and exploring;
- being active;
- interactive activities and quizzes;
- being creative (through writing, arts and crafts); and
The FFL Classroom also provides tips and best practice advice for parents and carers.
Resources focus on key food themes within curriculum areas, such as where food comes from, cooking, and healthy eating, but also offer a range of opportunities for cross-curricular learning. Many resources and activities use food as a vehicle to provide engaging learning via subjects such as: numeracy, literacy, humanities, science, PHSE/health and wellbeing, D&T, religious education, and art.
The FFL Classroom is providing an activity or resource for every day, from now until 1 September 2020, with new sets of resources being launched weekly throughout the coming months. Each resource has been designed so that pupils can use them on their own and without parental/carer or teacher supervision (where appropriate) and are also accompanied by guidance for parents and carers.
