Education at Wellington Country Park


At Wellington Country Park, we offer both ‘Park Staff’ and ‘Teacher' led educational workshops, to help enhance your visit to the Park.

We aim to provide workshops that are both informative and interactive, that take children outside the classroom and give them the opportunity to explore the Park and its rich biodiversity.

'Park Staff Led' Workshops

We currently offer three ‘Park Staff’ led educational workshops:-

  • Minibeast Hunting – An exciting walk through our woodlands to identify habitats and an array of minibeasts
  • Pond Dipping – A hands-on pond dipping session looking closely at pond life
  • Scavenger Hunt – An exciting look at woodland plants, leaves and seeds, finishing off with the opportunity for pupils to make their own collage

Our workshops are planned to run or 45 minutes and cover subjects which are suitable for Nursery and Primary pupils and are relative in their content, to the National Curriculum.

‘Teacher Led’ Workshops

If you would like to run your own session without all the time consuming preparation, we now offer our

DIY Kit - Minibeast Hunting Workshops

Our DIY kit allows you to present your own informative and interactive workshop, with all the materials and instructions provided in the pack, ready to use. You have total control over the length and location of your workshop, offering you complete flexibility!
