PICK 'N' MIX: / Exhibition / Lunch in a Bag / 'Show and Tell' Slots

Choose from a wide variety of sessions: Primary * KS3 * KS4 * AS/A2 * Adult Ed * FE * Songs & Games * ICT extravaganza * PGCE

The purpose of a 'show and tell' is to give a quick flavour rather than to cover a topic in detail.

Feel free to raise questions / offer your tips by contacting us in advance (with the registration form) or writing them up on the 'Gum Tree' on the day!

Each session will be hosted by someone with a special interest in the area and who will 'kick off' with an idea and then structure the discussion. Others (incl relevant sponsors) will then be invited to contribute their own ideas / questions and a volunteer will collect all the ideas to display on webpages on the ALL London ( and mflresources ( sites

People who attend the session can continue the discussion online (Yahoo mflresources group: or at future events.
