We offer a selection of workshops for Key Stage 1 - 4 establishments to offer to their students. These sessions can include a diverse range of teaching resources including presentations, demonstrations, group activities and practical tasks!
Workshops provide professional interactive learning experiences that
specialise in a diverse range of animal science topics.
Although our sessions can correspond with an establishment's in-situ scheme of work, we also offer a selection of pre-designed sessions that surround topics Including natural habitats, animal enrichment, nutrition / food chains, conservation, animal behaviour, captive management / welfare, introduction into minibeasts, understanding the rainforest and the effects of pollution on the environment.
Our sessions are delivered by our experienced animal instructors who have achieved animal management and PTLLS teaching qualifications. This allows all workshops to be tailor-made to suit all levels of education,
When booking please inform us of your chosen topic(s), the overall length of the session, the students age group and number of the students participating.

Key Stage 1 - 4 practical workshops involve completing tasks with a range of live specimens. This helps to improve on confidence and skills such as group work!
Animals include a range of reptile, invertebrate and amphibian species.
How do we exhibit our animals - Our exotic animal display exhibits a variety of exotic animal species housed in Exo Terra glass terrariums. All enclosures are accompanied by educational signs that allows participants to read and learn about the individual species, along with general knowledge surrounding exotic animal husbandry and worldwide conservation projects,
This static display allows us to bring a selection of specialist species that are not suitable for practical tasks. It also allows participants who do not want to participate in any practical tasks, a fantastic opportunity to still get up close with a range of exotic animals whilst they stay inside their enclosures.
