While the garden gates to Kew and Wakehurst are temporarily closed, the schools team has been working hard to make the digital learning resources even more accessible to teachers and pupils. Studies have observed that just looking at a picture of green space can reduce stress levels. If you're in need of escapism, head over to the blog where they continue to share stories, pictures and films that showcase the beauty of the botanic gardens.

 

*NEW* 

Severn Trent Water's online page will be packed with fun activities that include core school subjects and more!
