 SCHOOLS
 

TweedStart Schools Resource pack for teachers. These teaching materials have been prepared by teachers, for primary schools, to fit the school curriculae and so that the River Tweed’s natural history, biology and geography can used as part of project work. This is a free resource, and is also available on the TES website for teachers. The resource can be used on its own to teach children about the river or in conjunction with TweedStart days. The Pack has been produced by the Tweed Foundation, in association with the Berwick Community Trust, and provides an exciting new teaching resource about the River Tweed for primary school teachers in both England and in Scotland. The Foundation has  been taking part in the Schools Days both at Glendale Showground, Wooler, and at the more recently formed Border Union event, in Kelso, for many years. At these events, the Foundation provides the children with the opportunity of meeting, close-up, the fish and invertebrates that live in the river and teaches them about the natural history of the River Tweed. Whilst the Pack retains a distinctly ‘River Tweed’ flavour, and is primarily aimed at schools in North Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, many of the resources could easily be used, or adapted, for any primary school lesson in the UK. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with outdoor field days
