|New Schools Programme for Chiswick House and Gardens|
A range of fun and educational activities for schools and educational institutions
A range of fun and educational activities has been devised for pre-school, primary and secondary school age children as well as educational groups in the community. These range from historical tours of Chiswick House to Orienteering and Mini-beast Safaris and Gardening Sessions in the recently re-opened Walled Gardens. Specific tailor-made projects have also been designed to suit the curriculum needs of secondary school students.
Local pupils from The William Hogarth School were some of the first to explore the restored Wilderness area and pilot the education activities on offer.
Year 6 class teacher, Ms Carolyn Ross said, ‘The children have worked hard studying local history and exploring different maps. It was wonderful to apply these skills to a specially designed orienteering session and a tour of Chiswick House which is so local to us and a place of such important history’.
