Local History Study Day
Full day per class, £200, age 7-11 years
Morning session as above, taken around our main village attractions by our learning guide. (SoapWorks, Port Sunlight Museum and Edwardian Worker’s Cottage)
After lunch, play our census detective game to find out about some of the real people who lived here and after visiting their house for yourself, design your own buildings for the village to take back to school.
Urban Sketch Crawl Workshop
1.5 hours per class, £90, age 7-11 years
Learn about the urban sketchers movement and then make a sketchbook and go on a relaxed guided sketch crawl around the village. Take in some of the well-known (and some hidden!) sights to include in your drawn record along with village facts.
This takes place outside, so come prepared for the weather.
If weather is very poor, this can be done indoors from detailed photographs.
Plant Explorer workshop
2 hours per class, £120, age 7-11 years
Port Sunlight is well known for its beautiful park and garden areas.
Pupils will become plant scientists by exploring, investigating, grouping and identifying a variety of common wild and garden plants, including trees.
Make friends with a tree and find out how to measure and age it, as well as using some simple keys to classify what you discover.
Some of the elements of this session are delivered outside in the gardens, so come prepared for the weather
