Welcome to the very first digital Science Art and Writing conference brought to you by the Food and Farming Discovery Trust, the SAW Trust, St Peter Mancroft Church, The University of East Anglia and the John Innes Centre!  The theme of the conference is climate change and food production and is made up of a mixture of videos made by scientists, farmers, writers and artists, alongside downloadable activities for you to run in the classroom to add hands on activities to the mix. To celebrate the arrival of the awe-inspiring Gaia sculpture by artist Luke Jerram at St Peter Mancroft Church, the art session will enable children to create their own planet pieces.

A typical SAW day follows the format of science from reception to morning break, writing until lunch and then art until home time and so we have laid out the resources below to run in this order.  However, as the conference webpage will be open from the 19th - 22nd October, schools have the flexibility to spread it over several days if you so wish.

We encourage you to use your work to make a display and if you would like it to be included in the display at St Peter Mancroft Church in Norwich please ensure work is delivered to the church during opening hours by 3.30pm on Saturday 23rd October.    

Download the teacher notes and materials list for a preview of the day and to help with your planning. Remaining resources and videos will go live on October 19th, so please make sure to register to access the full conference resources.
