Stated learning outcomes for this course

Open Futures is a teacher CPD programme that helps teachers to build children's ability 'to think and to do'. It develops skills of enquiry, both as an end in itself and to underpin learning in three other strands of practical activity - cooking, gardening and digital filmmaking.

At the end of this one-day course, participants will have learnt:

  • Seasonal growing and cooking activities that can help children to think and work scientifically
  • A range of practical ways to enhance understanding of maths through growing and cooking
  • Ways to monitor and evaluate skills progression in pupils and staff


Suitable for teachers and TA's at KS1 and KS2 with little or no experience
