Glow Meet: The Beavers are Back! 27/04/2012 10:45

Programme Title:
The Beavers are Back!
Description:
Here’s your chance to speak to Beaver Expert Robert Needham, Field Officer for the Scottish Beaver Trial.

Beavers became extinct in the UK 400 years ago, but now they are back in Scotland as part of a trial reintroduction, being co-ordinated by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and the Scottish Wildlife Trust in partnership.

Since May 2009, four beaver families have been reintroduced to Knapdale, near Lochgilphead in Argyll and they have been busy since then making lodges, a dam and producing kits (baby beavers). This is your chance to ask lots of questions related to beavers and their habitat and to find out the latest news from the Trial.

Roisin will be showing interesting photo footage of the beavers as well as showing you what beaver signs to look out for, just in case you want to go to Knapdale and find them for yourself.

This Glow meet is aimed at Primary and lower secondary learners.

*TODAY* Early Years Glow Meet – Building the Curriculum 4: skills in the early years

Wednesday 29th February

4.00pm – 4.30pm

This Glow Meet is appropriate for all early years practitioners.

Building the Curriculum 4 supports the planning, design and delivery of the curriculum in early years establishments, schools and colleges. It sets out skills for learning, life and work demonstrating how they are embedded in the experiences and outcomes.

Can we build employability skills in the early years? Should we be thinking about these within the early level? During the session we will speak to a practitioner who, in partnership with her colleagues, helps children develop the skills they need for their life now and in the future.

A key aim of this Glow Meet will be to promote discussion and to inspire practitioners to explore different approaches to skills development in the early years. Participants will have the chance to ask the panel questions and share ideas.

Hope to see you there!
