Our Sessions

Informative and engaging, our curriculum-linked learning sessions make the most of the fantastic outdoor environments at our centres and are suitable for a range of ages and abilities. Led by experienced staff, sessions are very much hands-on, promoting learning through exploration and discovery.

During your visit

As well as taking part in a guided session (where available) there will be plenty of time for your group to explore the Centre. In order to make best use of this time, we have developed a range of self-guided resources which you can use to help extend your group’s learning. There are also a whole host of added extras available at each Centre to help you to make the most of your visit.

Before & after your visit

We have developed a range of curriculum-linked activities designed to introduce learning in each WWT topic. If you have not yet begun exploring a topic with your learners, these activities are a great place to start. The ‘Getting into’ resources can be used prior to your group attending a WWT Learning Session to maximise the impact of your visit.

And the learning and enjoyment doesn’t have to stop the moment you leave. We have developed a further range of resources to encourage your learners to reflect on their experiences and build upon their learning back in the classroom. These ‘Going deeper’ resources are a great way to follow-up your visit.
