We dig learning!

Schools are back in full-swing following the long chilly winter. Thankfully spring time is just a stone’s throw away. The sunnier season is perfect for enjoying outdoor adventures and experiencing new things.

School trips are a fantastic way of boosting kids’ confidence and improving essential teamwork skills. For school trips in Yorkshire, Kent, Devon and Durham why not treat your class to a day at Diggerland? 

Diggers are an obsession for kids all over the world, with famous cartoons such as Bob the Builder. Furthermore many kids dream of having a fulfilling career within the massive construction industry.

A school trip to any of our parks is sure to have your entire class grinning from ear to ear!  

Dig-a-Round at Diggerland Theme Park

What does a School Trip to Diggerland look like?

As soon as your coach has parked in one of our free parking bays, your class will be wowed by the range of rides around the park. Once through the entrance, your class will tour the park while expanding their knowledge of diggers and mechanics.

With the opportunity to maneuver heavy plant machinery such as dumper trucks and giant diggers

From an academic perspective the class will be substantially improving their knowledge in subjects such as:

  • KS1 & 2 Mathematics
  • KS1 & 2 Science
  • KS1 & 2 Design & Technology

Throughout the day your class will take part in practical work, teaching them life skills whilst having an exhilarating time. A snippet of the important skills a class would gain include:

 

  • Learning the essentials of Health & Safety by putting it into practice 
  • Knowledge of car mechanics such as clutches and gearboxes
  • How to balance the machine and exploring how gravity works
  • Why tyres have different patterns in relation to traction

The entire class will also prosper from the social interactions throughout the day with our friendly Diggerland staff. When the bellies start rumbling your group can enjoy lunch at our food outlet offering a range of affordable kids meals.

But we know most schools prefer to bring packed lunches so your class can enjoy munching away in our relaxing picnic area. Children may wish to bring some pocket money along to purchase some digger memorabilia at our Goodie Store.

These amazing facilities are available for school trips in Yorkshire, Kent, Devon and Durham.
