1. Essential information

Our Learning Officers will be guiding your class through a Virtual Fieldwork Experience in your classroom from Hyde Park. When you make a booking, you will receive an email with further information about the session you have booked and a Microsoft Teams link to access the session. You will also receive a physical resource pack which will be posted to your school in advance of the session.

Our Virtual Fieldwork sessions are designed to be projected onto a screen at the front of the classroom and they work best when we are also able to see the class. Therefore the ideal set-up in advance of the session would be for a laptop camera to be facing the class and projecting our Virtual Fieldwork onto a screen at the front of the class. This set-up would enable us to see the class, meaning we can interact with the students and ask/answer questions as if we were standing at the front of the classroom. Alternatively, the teacher can act as a go between from their class to the Learning Officer, selecting students to answer questions and relaying their answers or any questions to the learning officer either through video or the chat box.

All our Virtual sessions have optional follow-up activities which can either be used following lesson time or set as homework.

2. Prices

We are currently running an introductory offer for online sessions, which will usually be priced at £110+VAT.

2. Covid-19 security in our Learning programmes

We have worked hard to ensure that we can welcome school groups back to the park in a safe and responsible way, without compromising on the quality of their experience. Please read the documents provided below carefully and ensure that your group adheres to our Learning Officers’ instructions at all times. If you have any questions or additional requirements, please don’t hesitate to call us to discuss these.

Key changes to our usual procedures are:

  • There will be no indoor space available for the time you are at the park except for use of toilet and handwashing facilities.
  • Visits to toilet facilities must be as brief as possible and via a one-way system.
  • Students must wear warm and weather appropriate clothing with a waterproof outer layer. Footwear should be warm and waterproof. Hat, gloves, scarf and additional layers are recommended.
  • You may be asked to arrange for your group to bring certain basic materials (such as stationery), to ensure that equipment is not passed around more than necessary. Any equipment that is passed around will be thoroughly cleaned after the session.
  • We will ask your group to eat lunch out in the park if possible. If the weather will not be conducive to this, please contact us in the days before your visit and we will endeavour to arrange a lunch space which is situated outside and under cover.
  • A secure bag drop area will be provided.
  • Outside hand sanitizer stations will be provided.
  • All visitors are to wash hands on arrival and before departure.
