Key Stage 1 school visit programme
School visits at Kew Gardens are run by experienced and enthusiastic Kew teaching staff.
Many of our sessions are designed to enable learning progression in key topics through the student’s school life. For example, Plant Hunters at KS2 expands knowledge and experience gained in KS1 Plant Hunters.
To assess student progression, we use a mixture of peer discussion, open-ended questioning, shared experiences, predictions, investigating results and plenaries.
Our tastes of Kew sessions run for 45 minutes and all other sessions are 90 minutes.
On 23 February 2015, we launched our exciting new programme with relevant topics and improved content linked to the new national curriculum.
