With so much still undecided about how this will impact schools we will need to monitor and discuss any matters arising nearer the time of any booking.
Any schools with protocols can be assured I will work with them to keep to any guidelines.
From my side I already have experience delivering content with SD in place. I wear disposable gloves, face mask and also can add a full face shield (3D printed!) if required.
If distancing is in place we will need to look at scheduling sufficient time for each group to access the content.
Different workshops will / may need to be adapted to fit requirements but here are some general notes for each that I offer:
3D Printing. The running of the day should not be affected as this is ‘distance’ learning with pupils sat at desks with computers, following my instruction via smart screen or projector. The pupils will not need to approach me directly and they will be invited to come to see the printers working behind a clear screen.
Australia / Didgeridoo. I prefer to be in a large hall for this presentation so SD should be straight forward. We may have to limit or remove any handling of items I bring. The didgeridoo playing workshops will change for the foreseeable future so that hire will not be available. Pipe didgeridoos will need to be purchased, one for each pupil. They will arrive new in a sealed box and will be removed by the pupils and retained by them. I have dropped my price to cost on these to facilitate this (£1 per pupil).
British Prehistory – Stone Age, etc. I prefer to be in a large hall for this presentation so SD should be straight forward. We may have to limit or remove any handling of items I bring. I can still be in costume but with addition of modern PPE. Role play and crafts should still be possible.
