What we offer on a school trip
Immerse your class in hands-on learning with an educational school visit to our fabulous nature reserve. Our sessions are led by RSPB education professionals who are specialists in their field and able to engage all abilities, while helping you meet your learning objectives.
It's a great opportunity to inspire your children to talk about their science learning while fully engaging in the great outdoors.
We have curriculum linked half or full day teaching units to suit your class. Our sessions are varied and well-paced and aim to get pupils working scientifically and using technical vocabulary in context. We also aim to build pupils’ resilience and character through our fun and active sessions. Suggestions are also made for potential ongoing learning back in the classroom.
Each programme is designed to last two hours. Sessions run from 10am to 12pm and then 12.30 to 2.30pm. Two programmes can be combined to make a whole-day visit.
