STEM Workshops at Your School

Soanes Centre Workshops

Contact us

Soanes Centre

The Soanes Centre     Our Workshops     The basics (Costs - How to book - SEN)     How to get to us        

About the workshops:
• All our workshops involve investigation and include recording of results where applicable.
• We facilitate the workshops, but supervision and health and safety remains the schoolteacher’s responsibility, we    request that you bring enough adults for the adequate supervision of the children. We request that you bring a    minimum of 4 adults for a KS1 class and a minimum of 3 adults per class for KS2. If your class has less than 15    pupils, a minimum of 2 adults per class is sufficient.
• Almost all classes will go out into the park. Please ensure the children are equipped with footwear appropriate for a    woodland environment and a coat/jacket with a hood in damp or wet weather or a headcovering in very hot weather.

Special Educational Needs:
We welcome children with special needs (both Special Needs classes and individual children) and can adapt any of our workshops to suit your class. The Soanes Centre and its large pond are wheelchair accessible, as are the main paths in the park. If your class includes children with individual SEN it is helpful for us if you can tell at the time of booking but it is important to tell us before the start of the class itself!
