“The children were introduced to different trees….and enjoyed the leaf rubbing activity. The learning was adapted based on the children’s responses and linked to our Science topic.”

Teacher, Thornhill Junior and Infant School, Dewsbury


Join us and explore the stunning grounds and gardens of Harewood as we learn more about trees and woodland 

Your pupils will be offered an unforgettable learning experience as they get outside the classroom and explore the ground, garden and woodland at Harewood. 

Each session is led by an experienced Learning Facilitator and takes place in our brand new outdoor learning space. Pupils will be given the opportunity to visit Sylvascope (our sustainable treehouse) to get a birds eye view of our developing woodland.

Your pupils will take part in an interactive session as they learn about our native and non-native woodland, identifying the different types of trees, the seasonal changes they undergo as part of their life-cycle and the different habitats they create for wildlife. The session includes tree identification, games and stories to engage your class.

This session features practical activities which aim to stimulate a curiosity of the natural world and has a focus on Science and Geography and features the opportunity to develop science enquiry & scientific vocabulary matched to the National Curriculum.

Timings + Prices

Timings for all sessions are flexible and can be tailored to suit KS1, lower primary or upper primary aged pupils. 

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

Please be aware the session is seasonal so the activities will vary depending on the time of year that you choose to visit. 

Costs: £8.50 per pupil for a half-day experience.
