Early years education

These sessions provide many opportunities for children to display the ‘effective learning characteristics’ outlined in the EYFS Handbook 2014.  In particular: being willing to have a go; being involved and concentrating; having their own ideas; choosing ways to do things; finding new ways; and enjoying achieving what they set out to do. We can also adapt any of our Key Stage 1&2 sessions to tailor to your needs.

Woodland story-time & story stones

Enjoy an enchanting story in our woodland story circle or our African Field Station and then create art from the woodland in ways inspired by the story. Story stones inspire the children to make up their own stories too.

Teddy Bears’ Picnic

A Wild Place adventure for children and their teddies! A classic story inspires learning about woodland animals, fun outdoor games such as find-the-bear and finally a teddy bears’ picnic on our beautiful Tower Meadow. Please ask children to bring their teddies and their usual snack for the picnic.

Minibeast detectives & minibeast den-building

In this session, children find out about woodland habitats by playing an exciting game in the meadow before going on a minibeast hunt. As part of their investigation, children get to grips with using bug pots, magnifying glasses, identification charts and other essentials. Sessions finish with the opportunity to handle some of our special minibeasts! (Subject to availability)

*This session is available from April to July only. School group size limited to 45.
