Leeson House Field Studies Centre

EYFS & Key Stage 1

Day Visits for Foundation and Key Stage 1

All our courses are designed alongside the teachers in order to ensure the time spent at Leeson House is as valuable as possible and tailored to the needs of your class and topic.

Teddy Bears Picnic

The Teddy Bears Picnic programme is based on the principles of Earth Education and focuses on environmental education for reception and Key Stage 1 classes.
During your day visit to Leeson House, the children will take part in a sequence of activities which will help them learn the requirements for life of Teddy Bears - and also all other living creatures.

A picnic lunch shared with all the Teddies.

After the picnic the pupils will listen to a story which ties together all the themes explored in the morning session. The day concludes with the pupils working in groups to create miniature "desert islands" for their Teddies, complete with all the requirements for life.
