It’s a full day and its completely FREE!
We still have availability for 60 children.
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.
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.
