Schools are now encouraged to become more sustainable and many ‘green’ initiatives such as Eco-Schools, are being introduced. There are many ways in which Nature’s Way for Kids might work with your school, offering activities that can be directly linked to the National Curriculum, at Foundation stage and Key Stage 1 & 2.
We would be happy to visit your school with one of our after-school workshops. Approx. one hour long, our activities are wildlife, nature and garden-related. We base the workshops on the following themes :
‘Grow-your-own’ workshop – activities will be based on sowing and planting veggies, fruit and herbs. Emphasis will be focussed on seasonal growing.
‘Wildlife’ workshop – Throughout the spring and summer we will concentrate on planting nectar rich flowers and over colder months, building wildlife habitats will be introduced.
‘Willow’ workshop - Here we let the kids get creative, making willow butterflies and snails from the locally-sourced dried willow.
If you have space available in the school grounds for the planting activities, we’d be happy to use that or we can provide containers instead.
Prices can either be made by the schools to hold a workshop, or we can charge parents directly if they would like their child to attend. Please contact us for further information.
Wildlife or veggie garden design
If you would like to develop and wildlife or vegetable garden within your school and don’t quite know where to start then Nature’s Way for Kids can help. Whether it is re-designing a specified area or helping with plant selection for a nectar-rich wildlife border, we’d be happy to work with you to develop the school grounds into an attractive, but functional and educational, space.
Every consideration will be given to the staff and children’s requirements and … when it comes to planting up, if the kids are happy to get their hands dirty, then all the better!
As all projects are different, prices will be provided on an individual basis.
If you are interested in what we can offer to your school, please contact us by phone on 01202 748930 or e-mail us via the website or directly on firstname.lastname@example.org – we will soon be in touch shortly. Thanks!
