We are currently unable to offer school visits due to social distancing measures. We're soopa sorry for any inconvenience and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future!
BeWILDerwood offers an inspiring and safe environment for children to learn and play in. We welcome visits from pre-school, infant and primary schools as well as special schools.
Take the learning outside of the classroom and watch the children get inspiration from traditional play. We have exciting activities developed especially for your pupils, from early years to KS1 & 2. In the virtual world many modern children live in, their imagination is stifled and their thinking is done for them. We want to help you to bring their imagination to life!
Schools rates 2020
The school rate is available during Norfolk schools term time only (including weekends) for groups of 15 or more paying school visitors at £7.00 per child, with 1 accompanying adult free for every 5 children.
Additional paying school group adults are £7.00 each.
Not only is there a fabulous decrease in cost for the 2020 season, every paying child attending a school visit to BeWILDerwood will receive a “Swampy invites you back for free” voucher. Valid for 1 free entry for them to return to the woods with their family one day during the same season! Just because we’re nice like that!
Please note that vouchers received during the 2019 season will not be valid during 2020. T&Cs apply.

Questions? Questions? Lots of Questions!
(and answers of course)
How many children can we bring?
As many as you like. The park has a 3,000 person capacity and we will inform you at the time of your booking if there are a lot of other bookings on the same day.
I won’t know numbers until nearer the time. Will this be a problem?
No, this isn’t a problem at all! You can amend the numbers on your booking at any time prior to paying for your visit.
What is offered for each key stage? And which curriculum topics are covered?
We’ve developed slightly different education programmes to suit either Key Stage 1 (ages 5 to 6) or Key Stage 2 (ages 7 to 11). The programmes are cross-curricular and are designed to be led by accompanying teachers within the group, using a supporting teacher’s guide. We have post visit sheets that you can take back to school to continue the fun and recount your exciting day with the Boggles and Twiggles. We also have a ‘spotter’ activity for Early Years (Foundation Stage), which encourages children to look closer at the magic around them!
There are all sorts of areas that can be covered at BeWILDerwood including:
- Literacy; experience BeWILDerwood through the characters that live here in our interactive storytelling
- Science with the natural world and environment
- Maths using force, mass and counting
- You could even attempt some design work by creating your own Twiggle houses back at school!
We hope to help teachers to find non-traditional ways of engaging with the curriculum.
Below are some soopa fun activity sheets aimed at children in KS1 & KS2, free to download before your visit, yippee!
