Alongside educational visits around the Reserve, Monkton Nature Reserve also offers a series of talks and workshops that can be held in the classroom, as well as free school assemblies that can be used to inspire children to get involved in nature.
Classes and workshops last from 30 minutes up to an hour, see the table below to select your timings. We charge £50 for a 30 minute session per class, and £70 for an hour session per class. This also includes a free ‘taster’ assembly. Assemblies held independently generally last between 10 and 15 minutes and these are free of charge.
Many of the subjects below can be mixed and matched according to a school’s needs. We have listed approximate timings of sessions so you can plan out your own day’s programme.
