If you can’t come to us maybe we can come to you, with our outreach packages our expert staff will come to your school. Working in your school grounds or local area your tutor will ensure that your pupils get a hands-on learning experience in a Covid-secure way.

Pupils will work scientifically and compare plants growing in two areas, observing closely and taking measurements. They will use results to draw conclusions. They will observe and name different parts of plants and consider what plants need to grow, and how they reproduce. Pupils can make links between how plants grow, seed production and dispersal and consider how plants are adapted to their environment.

The day will encourage pupils to explore and use their curiosity to find out about the world around them and how better to care for their environment.
