These sessions are designed to operate in an ‘Earthwalks’-style format, where different activities can be combined into each walk to encourage imaginative exploration of sections of Marriott’s Way. The emphasis is on observation and use of the senses, to develop and deepen interest in even familiar landscapes.
Each session can combine activities with maths, science, geography and arts-focused elements, as well as drawing on surveying and recording techniques to build up a picture of their selected (or ‘adopted’) area over time. For this, multiple visits are encouraged over the course of the year, and content is flexible according to your area of study.
