There has never been a better time to bring pupils and students to Alexandra Palace. Explore the Park and Palace with your class or reserve a ‘Grab and Go’ pack for self-led activities to discover, challenge and inspire enquiring minds.
Creative Learning works with schools and colleges across Haringey and neighbouring boroughs, offering an exciting range of workshops, projects, takeovers and events throughout the year. The programme offers many opportunities for enrichment with a focus on creativity that spans the whole curriculum.
Our workshops provide practical platforms to showcase young people’s work, learn new skills, as well as signpost career opportunities and pathways in the creative sector. There’s CPD for teachers too!
Early Year to Key Stage 4
Our Wild in the Park sessions are normally lead by a specialist outdoor learning facilitator in Ally Pally park, starting with a hidden rendez-vous, where individuals and small teams complete challenges that encourage pupils to become responsible park users and treasure community spaces and resources.
Due to the pandemic, we’ve created some online resources to help you and your kids or pupils get wild in the park. Click on Nature Connections below for a series of videos themed around constructing dens, recognising birds and birdsong and learning some fun new games to play with sticks. Beneath you can download more resource packs to help you and the kids have fun outdoors.
Key Stage 1 & 2
Time capsules are a treasure trove of information about people and what they thought was important enough to keep. Curators and archaeologists use these treasures as clues to build up a picture of what a person’s life was like, by studying their possessions, clothing, jewellery, writing and photographs.
Create your own time and place capsule to record the time and place you are living in.
