Building Future Generations

Eddie & Ellie’s Wild Adventures is a cross-curriculum educational programme for lower KS2 pupils that is built around a children’s book.

It is a fundamental part of Thakeham’s Social Value approach, driving one of our four key Social Value goals – Building Future Generations.


A Lasting Impact

It’s a fully Thakeham funded programme of workshops, site visits and a school trip to a Wildlife Trust facility that follows a development’s journey from planning to site completion.

Carefully created in consultation with educational specialists, Wildlife Trusts, parents and their children, Eddie and Ellie is curated to leave a lasting impact long after the Thakeham development has been completed.
