Fun Add-On Sessions with the Jurassic Coast Trust!

Working in partnership with the Jurassic Coast Trust, we are pleased to offer a selection of add-on sessions for the students who visit the Isle of Purbeck for their school residential trip. These fun and educational sessions are a great addition to our programme of outdoor adventure activities and give students a chance to learn more about Dorset’s rich history and the Jurassic Coast – a World Heritage Site. The Jurassic Coast Trust educational session can be arranged for school groups staying in our tented village or hard top residential centre.

School groups can select an evening activity from a choice of two:

  • A mini-film presentation of ‘A Mighty Tale’ by Julian Sawyer, of Purbeck Footprints, a well-respected and knowledgeable JCT ambassador. This is followed by a fun, informal discussion centred on the film, the students’ thoughts arising from it and a variety of fossils all found along the Dorset section of the Jurassic Coast.

  • Top Jurassic Spots. Students are given different ‘Fact Boxes’ relating to different parts of the Jurassic Coast. They contain information and cool facts about each location plus a selection of fossils and other tactile pieces with a focus on dinosaurs. The students are tasked to use the information given to create a short talk to the rest of the group saying why their part of the coast is the best. This fun session creates an environment of fun learning and gentle competition. This activity has links to the curriculum for geography and science.

Teaching staff have the option to add educational sessions to their programme of adventure activities for a small donation per head to the Jurassic Coast Trust. These sessions allow students to learn more about the environment in which the activities take place. The Jurassic Coast Trust promotes education and protection of the Natural World Heritage Site, so that it can be enjoyed safely for years to come.
