Education at War Memorial Park
As part of the Heritage Lottery and Big Lottery Funded 'Parks for People' Project, new education programmes and resource packs have been developed for schools to come and use the War Memorial Park.
The Education Service at the Park aims to encourage a sense of wonder and respect for the environment through a range of outdoor learning programmes.
We have a range of exciting hands-on activities and field study programmes which support many areas of the national curriculum and beyond. All programmes build on the key skills of communication, thinking and working with others. With notice, we can also create programmes to suit your group's needs or further develop topics that are being studied.
