Our programme continues…

We had a fantastic two days of workshops and activities at the Architecture Centre, Underfall Yard and Bristol Zoo Gardens this week. The children gained new insights into the world of architecture and design, building their own models to ‘fill the gap’ of disused space on Bristol’s harbourside. We then explored the history and engineering behind Bristol’s floating harbour at Underfall yard. At Bristol Zoo, the team got up close with various mini beasts before challenging themselves to tackle the high ropes course at ZooRopia!¬†Well done to all those who took part and demonstrated such good team work, curiosity and resilience!


We have already begun our new 2017 enrichment programme!

This year’s team of 12 children, from Hotwell’s and Bishop Road primary schools, kicked off their journey with Wider World just before Christmas, taking part in three days of exciting activities across the city. During our packed programme we explored We The Curious, learned new circus skills, reached new heights at Redpoint Climbing Centre and practiced the art of chocolate making. We’re really excited for this week’s upcoming trips where we’ll be getting creative at the Architecture Centre, visiting Bristol’s old harbour and getting in touch with wildlife at Bristol Zoo!

New programme starting soon

We’re pleased to announce that Wider World will be working with Hotwells Primary School and Bishop Road Primary School in Bristol, delivering a programme of enrichment activities for 12 lucky KS2 children over a 6-month period. Exciting times.
