The Beverley Brook is today a much-hidden river, because its course has been culverted beneath roads, but you can still see wonderful glimpses of it where it rises in Worcester Park, and as it flows down to the Thames through Wimbledon Common, Richmond Park and Putney Common.
As with all rivers, it provides great learning opportunities to find out about river habitats and wildlife, to look at river features and processes and to investigate water quality.
What can we do for your school?
Thanks to funding from the Greggs Foundation, we are able to offer your school
FREE Outdoor sessions
whilst funding lasts (bookings will be taken on a first, come first served basis)
We bring the Beverley Brook to you!
At our assemblies, school children will be taken on a virtual trip down the Beverley Brook through an interactive session where they will learn all about the river, its wildlife and some of the issues that face the Brook such as water quality.
The assembly can serve as a great introduction to our outdoor sessions…
We run outdoor sessions at various sites along the Brook, meeting at a green space near your school, with trips available to classes with up to 30 children.
Our 2 hour led sessions allow children to take part in a wide range of sensory activities and games on the riverbank, all linked to the national curriculum. Activities can include river dipping for invertebrates, measuring river speed, wildlife-eye spy, map and compass work, and lots more.
Alternatively, we may be able to run sessions in your classroom or school grounds. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
