Key stage 1 (KS1) courses

All courses are curriculum linked and are based in and around the natural environment. Activities are practical, sensory and involve hands on participation, with the aim of not only teaching a particular subject, but encouraging an interest and respect for the natural world.

Courses are flexible and can be adapted to suit the needs of each group.  

All courses are offered as full days, those marked * (see below) are also available as a half day option.

Half day options are either

  • A two group special where one class comes in the morning the other in the afternoon
  • Nature trail option where 2 classes come together - one class is taught by BEECHE staff in the morning while the other class is taken on the nature trail by the school's teacher, classes swap over after lunch.

    Please note: Once this course is booked the teachers in charge will need to visit BEECHE and walk the nature trail before their school visit, to ensure they are familiar with the route. Please telephone first to arrange a mutually convenient time.
