Here at Twycross Zoo, we provide interactive and exciting sessions for Key Stage One and Key Stage Two students that will fit in with all areas of the curriculum.Our workshops are not only great at confidence building but are also very educational as they help children learn about nature and wildlife, the issues currently threatening it, and how we can co-exist and help animals thrive in their natural habitat.
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.
An interactive session where children work collaboratively to create a habitat and identify adaptions of animals that live in different habitats around the world.
Children will learn about evolution and how fossils have give us clues to the past. We explore why some animals have changed so much over a long period of time and identify some animal adaptions along the way.
Through games and investigations children will discover what biodiversity means, why all animals are important and how we can work together to save the natural world.
In this session we explore the rainforest layers, what animals live there and why this fragile biome is so important to us.
