Countryside Live!
Best, Andrew; Richardson, Gary
Primary Science Review, n91 p12-13 Jan-Feb 2006
The "Countryside Live!" events, organised by the Countryside Foundation for Education (CFE), provide a unique opportunity for urban children to explore a whole new area of possibilities and learning, through becoming aware at first-hand of what goes on in the countryside. The event at Staunton Country Park, Havant, Hampshire, which took place on 17 March 2005, was one of three events run in England in 2005 by the Foundation, along with Haydock Park in the northwest and Lee Valley Country Park in East London. The events were billed as "the country fair for school children--bringing the countryside to inner city youngsters" and were supported by the Countryside Agency. The aim of these events is to provide educational support for children, parents and teachers, enabling them to have a safe, fun, hassle-free, lasting and meaningful experience of what the countryside can offer in relation to their learning. In this article, the authors describe the impact of introducing urban children to the life of the countryside.
