Key Stage 1 Discover Nature

Minibeast Safari

Look for creatures that live in different habitats. Through play and games, pupils learn about creatures including how they live, camouflage and how to identify them.

Pond Dipping

Pupils investigate the creatures living in Painshill’s shallow lake before taking their catch back to the ‘Bug Lab’ where they use a digital microscope and identification keys.

Plant Explorers

Take the life journey of a Painshill plant. Starting as tiny seeds, pupils use games to disperse, germinate and avoid hungry birds to grow into terrific trees. Using their imagination and new-found knowledge, pupils make a micro-garden.

Your day

Each activity is a half day session. Book another activity for the rest of the day or go exploring with a self-led trail.
