Activity Trail and Quiz

In 2019, we produced an activity trail and quiz for children (with an accompanied adult) that is in and around the garden. This is completely free to download and use. If you have any suggestions or feedback, be this good or bad from using it, please let us know.

 

Click here for the quiz and here for the answers.

Activity Sheets

With funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2018, a set of activity sheets were created which are available to be downloaded.

 

 

There are individual files for each of the topics below which contain activities. Some include a useful list of general resources and specific records of creatures found in the Bohemia Walled Garden and Summerfields Wood in Hastings,East Sussex.

They are based on activities done at the Bohemia Walled Garden or in Summerfields wood but they can be adapted for use in other open spaces.
