John Muir Award
We can offer the John Muir Discovery Award to a class or small groups of upper KS2 students.
During five sessions on our site, we will guide you through the John Muir Discovery Award which encourages students to Discover, Explore and Conserve a wild space and then Share their experiences with others. On completion of the Award, each student will receive a certificate from the John Muir Trust to recognise their achievements.
The course includes elements of Ecology, Conservation and Sustainability.
In the first session we will introduce the John Muir Award and show you around our site, explaining the landfill site and the Waste Transfer Station and the impact of waste on the environment.
Following sessions can be tailored to the needs of the group but may include orienteering, shelter building, wildlife discovery, map making, creative crafts using willow and natural resources and conservation tasks. There will also be some tasks set for extending learning at home including litter picking or volunteering in your local area, creating a map or poster of Carymoor, taking friends or family on a wildlife walk and record what was found or encouraging class members to take part in a waste free lunch.
Please contact us for more details and to check availability. This award will require 5 days of education on site which would be charged at £1,250 for between 5 and 12 children.
