Learning resource – the gardens at COAM

With the start of spring just around the corner we thought there was no better time to tell you all about the different gardens we have here at COAM and the hard work of our wonderful gardening volunteers to keep them looking great for our visitors. In our eighth installment of home learning resources you can discover the planning that goes into each garden and how we use the spaces we have available to show different time periods. Discover what a ‘day in the life’ of one of our volunteer gardeners is like and how the gardens need attention throughout the year. Finally, have a go at designing your own garden or outdoor space!

Children may be back in classrooms however we will continue to release fun resources and activities for all the family to get involved in and enjoy together every Tuesday until the end of the Easter Holidays. Brought to you by the Learning team behind our popular ‘Terrific Tuesday’ events, these resources will be a perfect way to learn new information about the natural world around us, develop new skills and stay connected to the Museum until we reopen in late March.

Be sure to check back next week for more home learning fun.
