    On Saturday 24 February The Sill Learning Team is inviting teachers and their families to come to The Sill to find out about the learning opportunities we offer to school groups. We offer sessions on a wide variety of subjects and can deliver in school, in The Sill, and out on sites in Northumberland National Park. Staff will be available to talk about our entire learning programme, including the possibility of designing bespoke sessions for schools, but we will be showcasing a few new activities in particular:

    · See how we’re celebrating the National Parks Dark Skies Festival
    · Find out about our National Science week programme
    · Explore our new exhibition resources
    · Find out about our upcoming Digital Landscapes week
    Please bring your family!  Our Rangers will be running bushcraft activities, and staff (and animals!) from Four Paws Animal Shows will showcase our joint Nocturnal Wildlife workshop.
    There are two sessions available, 10am - 12pm or 1 - 3pm. Please note you do not need to stay for the full session but please RSVP via email or phone to confirm whether you would like to attend the morning or the afternoon.
    We are able to offer a 50% discount on any parking charge for teachers attending this event. Please ask for details on arrival.
