Earthwhisperer Outdoor Learning
Hands-on workshops in your school grounds or local park
Combining science with wellbeing
Welcome to Earthwhisperer. It is our vision that our children can grow up knowing the natural world as a place of they can go to for a sense of belonging, wonder and refuge. Nature needs children to feel this deep connection if is to thrive and children need it too if they are to truly thrive.
We offer seven outdoor workshops. All are designed to generate a sense of awe, wonder, freedom and gratitude.
My Animal Friends
KS1 & KS2
Watch our film about 7 year old Iliana's, wildlife encounters in lockdown. Then step outside to make friends with the fascinating animals living on your doorstep. Visit them in their homes and spot the clues they leave behind. Equipped to the eyeballs we'll make lots of new animal friends!
KS1 & KS2
Learn all about the birds that you share your neighbourhood with. Study their characteristics with our state of the art binoculars. Learn the 'tracker's walk' to get closer to birds than you've ever thought possible. Inspect a bird's nest, then have a go at making one yourself.
KS1 & KS2
Using our senses to be present to the world around us, we'll soon discover the power of nature to calm and soothe. Sound mapping, birdsong, cloud gazing... all will rest and refresh our minds
Stone Age Life
Explore some stone age artefacts, have a go at lighting a fire with a flint and steel and build a mini stone age dwelling. Does life 2.5 million years ago have any lessons for us humans living today?
My Minibeast Friends
Watch our film about minibeasts in London. Then step outside to discover your own. What have I caught in my net? What's dropped out of the bush onto your sheet? We'll leave no stone unturned!
Free as a Bird
Make and decorate your own binoculars pre-visit before learning some bird calls. Learn to amplify sound with your 'foxes ears', then we'll head outdoors to see what birds we can see and hear. Inspect a bird's nest and have a go at making one yourself.
Explore all the textures, sounds, sights and smells nature has to offer. Compare and contrast. Make a rainbow of colour or a staircase of sticks. Go home happy with your very own gift box full of natural treasures you have collected.
