We are working on a project on ecosystems and biodiversity called ‘The Wild Escape’, a national project supported by Artfund uk. The project is aimed at KS2 students and their families.

This website gives a bit more info about the project.



Rough outline:-

We will be working with a local textiles artist and the parks team at Cliffe castle Museum. The students will participate in a workshop thinking about the Biodiversity in the park and the importance/role of  plants and animals within ecosystems. The session will be led by the artist, parks team and the museums learning team. It will be a full day experience for the children and their parents/carers are encouraged to come along for the day.


It will include;-

·         Looking at Natural sciences collections and learning about plants/animals/habitats.

·         Thinking about the importance of biodiversity and how species support each other in an environment

·         An arts/textiles based outcome to be displayed in the museum/ in school

·         Hopefully working with the bees/ thinking about pollinators

·         Working with children but also their families/ carers- so they will be invited along to the workshop as well.

·         Having a take home arts activity for families to do at home.

·         Having a celebration event on/around World Earth Day in April.


Rough timeline;-
