We have a well established educational programme here at the CPG – offering sessions for all Key Stages, including EYFS – to celebrate and learn about the wonderful world of plants, history, geography and art.

We provide unique, fun and valuable learning experiences that, not only meet your curriculum objectives, but are also suited to interests and needs to you and your class and importantly give you all a memorable day out.

Our new film will give you a glimpse of what's in store!

New for 2019: we are in the process of redeveloping some new educational sessions, with the view to have more by September 2019. Here are the first five that we will be trialling during this academic year:

  • Seasons & Senses (Early Years) - to understand our five senses and be aware of the changing seasons.

  • Plant hunters (Year 1 and 2) SCI: describe that plants live in environments in which they are suited GEO: use world maps, atlases and globes to identify continents and oceans. Take our Plant Hunters Quiz here.

  • Eco Warriors (Key Stage 2) - recognise how environments can change and that this poses dangers to living things; gain an understanding of ecological concepts such as habitats, and food webs. Learn that our own behaviours can make a difference to the world.

  • Flower Power (Year 3 and 4) - explore the life cycle of a plant, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal. Understand the interdependence of living things.

  • Cash crops (Year 5 and 6) SCI: identify ways in which plants adapt to flourish in their environment GEO: explore global economic activity and how this impacts people and the planet.

All sessions run 10.30am– 2pm. Our Education room is available for lunch.

Sessions are available for full-day (£8.80) or half-day (£6.50) per child. Adults are free.  

Dates currently available for the 2020/2021 academic year.
