What we offer on a school trip
The North York Moors National Park Education Service offers a wide range of inspiring activities to help young people to experience, understand and enjoy the spectacular countryside and coast of this special place.
We provide activities for schools and groups from reception through to A level. All school activities are curriculum linked and can be tailored to exam specifications. Reception and KS1 children can enjoy activities linked to the Gruffalo and Percy the Park Keeper, whilst having woodland and countryside adventures. KS 2 children can undertake habitat studies including rivers, woods, moorland and seashore, they can experience a variety of walks whilst practicing their map, compass and GPS skills. If your looking for a creative day then art is well served through landscape painting, woolly weaving and sculpture.
Activities for KS3 and above involve fieldwork and geographical skills; river investigations, flood management and coastal processes and management.
Many of these activities can be adapted for groups other than schools and we do offer specific activities for uniformed groups working towards specific badges.
We are happy to adapt or develop activities to suit the special needs of groups or individuals wherever possible.
