Schools from across Lincolnshire will join the county-wide celebrations of Lincolnshire Day, during an action-packed event at the Lincolnshire Showground. The Showground will host an array of Lincolnshire-derived learning activities and experiences over the 3rd and 4th October.
The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society’s Education team have brought together the finest of the county’s food, farming, craft, aviation, heritage and sport for KS2 students to enjoy, getting hands-on whilst learning all about the county’s traditions.
Students have been invited to the Showground to enjoy a full day of activities celebrating everything that’s great about the county – from sausage-making, to exploring Lincolnshire soils to floristry and sustainable sewing. The county’s sporting and aviation links will provide opportunities for the students to experience first-hand taster sessions.
Students will have the opportunity to become an astronaut for the day and encounter rocket flying with the Royal Air Force, bake ‘Lincolnshire Plumbread’ inspired cupcakes, and have a go at making cheese with Cote Hill Cheese. There is fabulous support from almost 30 exhibitors, dedicating their time and skills across the days. For a full list of exhibitors and activities please visit Lincolnshire Day | Mon 3 – Tue 4 Oct (lincolnshireshowground.co.uk).
Education development manager, Rosie Crust, said: “As the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, we are passionate about Lincolnshire and want to celebrate everything that’s great about our county – from local aviation, its agricultural roots, to delicious local produce.
“By inviting school students to join us for our own celebration of Lincolnshire Day we hope to impart a little seed of this enthusiasm and love for our county onto the younger generation, along with enhancing their knowledge and understanding of Lincolnshire’s traditions, history and culture”.
