Fun daily activities
Heath Week is a week of events each year celebrating and highlighting our amazing and precious heathlands.
As part of it this year we posted a new activity for children each day.
Just click on the days below for your info sheet and have fun!
As field trips are only just beginning to go ahead again at the moment, we have decided to bring the heathland to you and your classrooms. Take a look at some of our short virtual lessons taken out on our Dorset heathlands. Keep an eye out for new ones we will be posting soon. The lessons are linked to the National Curriculum and aimed at specific key stages.
In addition the education team would love to continue supporting our teachers by offering free live and virtual lessons, which can be bespoke to fit into your units of study, as well as advice on outdoor nature activities that you could run in your school grounds. If you are interested in these and would like to know more, please get in touch with Sarah, the Education Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
