Schools Education Programme

We offer a range of inspiring KS1 & KS2 education programmes aimed at exploring and understanding the natural world.  Our highly skilled staff deliver engaging, hands on learning activities aimed at encouraging children to develop their understanding of nature and apply their scientific enquiry skills.  All our education programmes are curriculum linked and cover programmes of study such as plants, animals, living things & their habitats, adaptations, growing and healthy eating. 

SEED TO SUPERMARKET

Where does our food come from and how does it get to our plat?  Reconnect with nature and learn what plants need to grow.  Explore our allotments on a fruit and vegetable hunt.  Become a herb detective and plant your own seed to take away.  C​onsider the different animals that live on farms and what foods they give us.  Make and taste some home-made butter and try grinding some wheat.
