Exploring Autumn with Ilbert – sessions for Home Educators
This free session offers our younger visitors a chance to explore Pontefract Castle and look at the signs of autumn around them. It is a stimulating mix of listening, looking, discussion and creativity.
Children will work in small groups with parental support, around a carousel of self-led activities. A member of our team will be on hand to meet your group and support your visit.
– listening to the sounds around us
– seeing how the season changes aroudn the site
– searching for small creatures around our site that call the castle their home
– creating an Ilber the Dragon picture using natural resourses
A set of self-led resources and all activity materials will be available in the activity zone upon arrival.
Links to science (habitats, plant identification & life cycles), speaking & listening, outdoor exploration and team work can be developed throughout these activities.
This session will start in the Activity Zone at Pontefract Castle. The actvities will be ready for people to participate.
