School visits at Wakehurst support and enhance the curriculum offered in schools. We aim to give students opportunities that are difficult or impossible to create in the school environment.
As teachers ourselves, we design our sessions to match the learning outcomes in the National Curriculum. At the moment, the new government has withdrawn the changes planned for 2010/11 and will be producing new curriculum guidelines. Once they have done that, we will re-visit the learning outcomes for our sessions.
The learning outcomes shown apply to the curriculum as it is at this time. Please note that all our sessions have a cross-curricular approach and are tailored to suit the educational needs of your group. This session offers students the opportunity to learn to:
- be creative using natural materials as an inspiration
- other outcomes will vary according to the activity and theme chosen.
