Mosaic, an exciting farming and wildlife education programme developed by the Countryside Restoration Trust (CRT), is now available to even more children at Pierrepont Farm, in the heart of the Surrey countryside. Pierrepont is a busy and bustling dairy farm with a woodland and pond, both teeming with wildlife. It is the perfect environment to teach children about how and why we must protect the natural world. 

In addition to catering for primary schools, Beaver colonies and Cub packs, Mosaic has launched a range of new offers, including: 

  • HomeSchool – weekly outdoor learning sessions that bring the  national curriculum to life  for home-schooled children, aged   four to 11; 
  • Mini Mosaic – ‘stay and play’ sessions with learning and games, all  themed around a farming or wildlife story or song, for children aged  two to four, and their parents and carers; and 
  • Holiday Club – a kids’ club during the half terms,  Easter and summer holidays, jam-packed with activities like   den building, butter making, and cooking over an open fire. Available to four- to 11-year-olds. 

Gerry Turner, Education Manager at the Countryside Restoration Trust, said: “Mosaic is really unique in teaching children about the intersection between farming and wildlife. Wildlife-friendly agriculture has been hitting our headlines recently, and Mosaic offers children an unparalleled opportunity to experience this first-hand, all in a safe and secure environment. Places are booking up fast, so I would encourage teachers, parents, carers and Scout leaders to get in touch sooner rather than later.” 

Mrs Emily Morgan, Reception Class Teacher at St Mary’s Infants, Frensham, said: “Mosaic offers pupils the opportunity to see, and interact with, a fantastic range of habitats and wildlife, including pond life, minibeasts and of course their favourite – the Jersey cows. It really was quite a magical and inspiring day out.”
