School Visits and Outreach

We are open all year round for school outreach and visits to the Mill.

The Tide Mill provides unique opportunities for learning in a range of subjects and for cross-curricular work at all levels.

We would like to thank three local schools for piloting some of our educational offers; Kyson, St Marys and Woodbridge Primary School. Throughout two terms in 2012 we developed lesson plans, resource lists, learning objectives and links with the curriculum to provide valuable opportunities. Planning was developed with teaching staff to best suit interests and timetables, which is a practice we aim to continue with all schools and groups.

We are very keen to work with all ages and from various educational settings. We can also provide lots of outreach opportunities, for pre and post visit experiences and enhanced learning. These range from history to engineering design and model making to baking. We were awarded ‘Learning Outside the Classroom’ accreditation which recognises and confirms that the Tide Mill is a safe and valuable place to learn. Visits to Mill: £2 per pupil/student and accompanying adults free. Free entrance for a teacher’s planning visit is available on request.

Projects and Themes developed in 2016

We continue to offer the learning of the past five years and have added in even more themes. These will now include Water and Rivers and bespoke history topics (WW1 and the Tudors) and Art. Deben Decorative and Fine Art Society gave the Mill funding to develop a KS2 art pack click here to download. Please do contact us if you would like to know more about what we could offer to your school. We are able to visit you to discuss ideas and planning and are very open to developing individual schools’ requests.

We are also able to offer advice, support, outreach and visits which focus ongrowing-milling-baking-eating’.

Performance at the Tide Mill: The Tide Mill, Woodbridge Museum and Ancestral-Voices can offer linked visits which would give schools the opportunity to research and gather information from various historical sources. The Tide Mill becoming a backdrop for pupils to perform or watch a performance. If you are interested please contact us and we would be happy to come into your setting to discuss ideas and plans.

Educational Resources

The Tide Mill has used a wide range of sources for educational materials, providing an extensive range of learning resources.

An education pack is available providing background information, ideas for work within schools, details of making the most of a visit, curriculum links in a range of subjects and practical and fun lesson ideas. A Learning co-ordinator can work with a school, planning and facilitating learning on visits or outreach, incorporating visual presentations, stories, songs, recipes, cooking, construction equipment, research and film making practices. Sitting on the banks of the River Deben in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) , we are perfectly situated to offer knowledge and the resources to study river birds and wildlife.
