Join us in the stunning grounds of Harewood House for your pupils to explore Living Things and their habitats and develop their Working Scientifically skills.

This workshop is part of The Wild Escape project, a UK wide, museum based project celebrating biodiversity in the British Isles.

In this unforgettable learning experience, pupils will get outside the classroom and explore habitats, microhabitats and minibeasts. Sessions can be adapted to meet Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 National Curriculum Learning Objectives around Classification and Living things and their habitats.

Each session is led by an experienced Learning Facilitator and takes place in our Farm Experience, Minibeast Area and in our Himalayan Garden. Sessions feature practical activities including finding and classifying animals, and a STEM-based follow up.

Timings + Prices
Timings for all sessions are flexible and can be tailored to suit year group needs.

The session runs as a carousel of parallel activities by dividing your group in half and switching through activities at approximately 11.00am. Each session is led by an experienced Learning Facilitator offering structured guidance and hands-on facilitation whilst encouraging them to explore for themselves.

Costs: £7 per pupil for a half-day experience.
