Primary School Visits Workshops

What we do...

Our sessions are specifically designed to inspire children about the natural world around them. Children are guided through a 45-minute session by our award-winning Education Officers. Each session is hosted in our under-cover teaching classrooms and can accommodate up to 30 pupils. All sessions come with free resources for you to use on site or back at school to do post-visit work.

Deforestation, pollution and hunting are just some of the threats animals face in the wild. Through interactive games, the session shows children how by working together we can all become wildlife heroes.

KS1 Habitats and Adaptions

An interactive session where children work collaboratively to create a habitat and identify adaptions of animals that live in different habitats around the world.

KS2 Evolution and Adaption
