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.
Discover the differences between herbivores, carnivores and omnivores and the part they play in food chains. We will also explore how animals use their senses to find food and test our own along the way.
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 cross curricular STEM session, children will take part in their own scientific investigation and learn how to measure animal behaviour - just like researchers in the zoo! Pupils will collect their own data to take back to school to continue the learning.
Children will explore the different ways in which animals are grouped. Using a range of interactive resources, we will investigate the difference between mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and fish.
Children will have the opportunity to discover the difference between continents, biomes and habitats. We focus on different animals and identify their adaptions, exploring what characteristics animals share in some of the World's most wonderful biomes.
This STEM based session focuses on enclosure design. Children work collaboratively together using maths to plan and then build an enclosure for an animal out of blocks.
In this session we explore the rainforest layers, what animals live there and why this fragile biome is so important to us.
We are aware that every child is different and as such we would love to talk to you about your special educational needs. Twycross Zoo provides a unique learning experience for your pupils. The sessions we provide can be specifically tailored to yourselves to be suitable for all levels of special needs.
