Learning team member examining pond life with two children

School children will love a day out in nature's outdoor classroom.

Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve provides an amazing educational resource and inspiring backdrop for an adventurous day out. School groups have exclusive use of our Education Area, which includes fen and woodland habitats as well as two large shelters that are essential when the weather turns!

Our Learning Team offers a range of activities for children of all ages, from Early Years Foundation Stage through to Key Stage 5. Class teachers can choose from a range of activities such as Pond Dipping, Minibeasts and Fen Cottage (social history), all of which are linked to the National Curriculum and adapted to suit the age and abilities of every group.
