Key Stage 4 school visit programme
Education sessions at Kew Gardens are taught by experienced and enthusiastic Kew teaching staff. The Key Stage 4 programme is currently being redesigned for launch later in 2015. This will strengthen links to the upcoming new national curriculum in 2015 and meet curriculum targets across a wide range of subjects including science, English, geography, art and more.
Our aim is to ensure that through active participation, questioning and inquiry-based learning we offer pupils opportunities to work scientifically in areas that are difficult or impossible to create in the school environment.
Many of our sessions are designed to enable learning progression in key topics through the student’s school life.
To assess student’s progression, we use a mixture of peer discussion, open-ended questioning, shared experiences, predictions, investigating results and plenaries.
