The Commonwork Trust at Bore Place is an educational charity committed to providing opportunities to connect with the outdoors and nature and learn about food, farming and the environment.
Our Farm Explorers (EYFS/KS1), Nature Champion (KS2) and Citizen Scientist (KS3) days are tailored to each age group. Most days will begin with a tour of our organic dairy farm, which is at the heart of what we do. We will then widen our focus by exploring farmland habitats, and the wildlife that lives there.
Activities are based around the changing seasons. For example, if you come in the summer you may be able to take part in pollinator surveying or pond dipping, whereas in the winter we may practise our bird spotting, survival skills or connecting with nature through art. The programme can be adapted to suit your class's topic - just let us know when you inquire.
