Activities and workshops for schools in and around Brighton

School activities and workshops take place in Stanmer Park Local Nature Reserve at Care Coop’s Community Farm and Woodland Garden in Brighton, East Sussex. But visits can also be made to your school, or to other woodland sites, by arrangement.

All learning opportunities are linked to – and enhance – the objectives of the National Curriculum, and are adapted for all key stages of Primary Education.

Learn the value of the natural world through hands on investigation with activities such as:

  • Nature Awareness and Sensory Games
  • Nature Study focusing on a species or habitat eg, Ponds, Trees, Plants, Minibeasts, Mammals, Birds
  • Firecraft & Wilderness Skills
  • Wildlife Tracking and Fieldcraft Techniques

Second Nature can also deliver a programme for pupils to gain the John Muir Environmental Award.

On-site Risk Assessments have been carried out. Teachers and Group Leaders are welcome to come for a pre-visit meeting, to discuss individual requirements.

Nicky Fish is a member of the Outdoor Learning Institute. She has full Public Liability Insurance and is a member of the Sussex Environmental Education Forum (SEEF), the Hampshire Environmental Education Group (HEEG), and SUSSED Environmental Education & Education For Sustainability Group.

Tug at a single thing in nature and you’ll find it attached to the rest of the world.
