This fieldwork day gives pupils the opportunity to discover the course of a river from its source on the Ightham Mote estate.
During the day, there will be opportunities to sketch the river and test its depth, width and flow, and to use local maps.
Ightham Mote has many different habitats, which makes this an ideal outing for pupils studying Habitats.
The day will provide opportunities for pupils to discover what lives in the pond, as well as to identify the different conditions and habitats in the woodland.
Promoting teamwork, this session enables pupils to identify materials and components used in the construction of a shelter, before they build their own, full-sized den.
This hands-on study day will allow pupils to investigate what homes were like a long time ago and what it was like to live here in the past. The day includes a guided tour of the house and the remaining sessions can be tailored to meet the needs of your class, such as medieval, Tudor and Victorian themes.
Investigate some of the hidden messages found in portraits at Ightham Mote and create a movable picture.
