Earth Trust have been running educational visits at Earth Trust for over 35 years giving young people the opportunity to learn outside the classroom. We welcome over 3000 school children per year and this year we have refreshed our sessions and are ready for the new school year.  Our dedicated team of Earth School Tutors will work with your students to offer them a unique day of  discovery and learning and a day they wont forget.

Our location, environment and dedicated trained staff are our best teaching tools and every workshop we run is based outdoors. We are lucky to boast the site of an Iron Age hill fort, SSSI woodland, grassland and river Thames all within walking distance of our main site.

Our new and improved sessions are customisable to your curriculum needs and we cater for all Key Stages.

Spring Senses and Seasons

Download Coming Soon

Spring is an amazing time to visit us – there’s so much bursting into life across our farm, meadows and woodlands. It’s a perfect opportunity to  engage all five senses to spot the signs of spring!

Your class will get close up to shepherd Emma’s new-born lambs – if you’re very very lucky, you might even see one being born! Pupils will learn about basic sheep husbandry and why our sheep are important to help look after the land, then take a sensory walk using all five senses to see, sniff, hear, touch and see what can be eaten (not by us!) in this wonderful season.

For more information and to tailor your activities to the age and interest of your class please email the Learning team.
Note:  This workshop includes a visit to our sheep sheds to see lambs and pregnant ewes – this part of the visit is NOT suitable for pregnant woman.
