Suffolk Learning Destinations
With a number of Suffolk Schools about to become part of the Children's University, we've been validating some brand new Learning Destinations across the County.
  • Experience activities involving printmaking, painting, drawing, designing, experimenting and exploring in a Tom’s Tuesdays session at Gainsborough House.
  • At the Museum of East Anglian Life you can find out about how Suffolk people lived in the past.
  • Learn about the Gentle Giant Suffolk Punch Horses, how they are cared for and how they work for us at the Suffolk Punch Trust.
  • Ipswich Museum will be running a number of activities for children during the summer holidays with an Around the World Theme.
  • Kinetic Science run holiday science clubs and events all over the East of England including our “Lab in a Library” where a two hour workshop costs as little as £3 per child. They’re getting ready to open our interactive STEM centre in Bury St. Edmunds  in the Summer.
  • Make a visit to Kentwell Hall -  this truly magical venue for a great family day out with Tudor house, gardens & rare breeds farm.  Children can earn up to 3 hours in their Passport for a general visit and self-guided tour and an additional hour for the Story Book Trail.  A number of re-creation days run throughout the summer and these really bring history to life.
Don't forget to check out the range of activities taking place at Essex Wildlife Trust sites too.
