Leigh Woods school sessions

School children learning about Iron Age life

Our experienced learning team run exciting, hands-on sessions for visiting school groups. We offer the following curriculum linked sessions, designed to bring your learning to life:

Leigh Woods’ living things

A session packed full of hands-on activities exploring Bristol’s largest woodland area. Pupils will work scientifically to discover a fantastic array of animals and plants that live at Leigh Woods. They will use this wonderful natural classroom to explore what makes the woods such an important, diverse habitat.

Science, KS1 and 2,

Iron Age life

We’re going back a very, very long time... Join an Iron Age tribe, visit Stokeleigh camp and explore how people lived in the area 2,500 years ago. Step into the past as you enter the camp and understand the reasons this was such a fantastic place to set up home as you look out over the gorge. Discover the Iron Age way of life in this superb, atmospheric setting, a stone’s throw from the centre of Bristol.

This session is available each year between the 1st of March and the 31st of October.

History, KS2
