We've teamed up with Artfund and Leeds Museums and Galleries to create learning resources for schools to take part in The Wild Escape - a major new project uniting hundreds of museums and schools in a celebration of UK wildlife and creativity.
The Wild Escape invites primary aged learners to explore their favourite animals and minibeasts, and create an artwork imagining its journey to a natural habitat.
LEEDS 2023 have collaborated with Leeds Museums and Galleries, exploring their collection of native UK creatures to create learning resources to be used in primary schools and early years settings.
We've partnered with Meanwood Valley Urban Farm to offer free 2 hour nature workshops for KS1 and KS2. Groups will have a tour of the farm, meet the animals, find out about the work the farm does to help the environment, and build some habitats for our local wildlife.
Here are our activities for learners in the Early years foundation stage.
These activities are appropriate for learners in the KS1 stage (aged 4-6).
These activities are appropriate for learners in the KS2 stage (aged 7-9).
You can also use these further resources to explore UK based creatures as inspiration for your art work.
