We provide a variety of science based educational presentations with animals that are easy to handle and observe to suit the age range and topic being taught from Early Years settings, Primary and Secondary Schools to Further and Higher Education levels.
We are keen to feature interactive encounters with pupils in order for them to better understand and appreciate the natural world. Due to this we always follow appropriate health and safety procedures and risk assessments are available upon request.
Understanding the nature and features of reptiles, insects and arachnids is imperative to our line of work, sharing this information enables others to make informed decisions about the treatment of these animals in the wild and in captivity.
We attend sessions with animals that are easy to handle and observe to suit the age range. We will provide explanations of features within the animals and focus on using descriptive words to educate children about texture and colour.
SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES
For classrooms and small groups we take the time to introduce each of the animals and identify key interesting features and differences. We then allow the pupils the opportunity to get up close and encounter the animals for themselves, reviewing some of the things we discussed.
ADDITIONAL NEEDS (ASN & SEN)
We can provide dedicated sessions to pupils with additional needs, in an environment they are comfortable with. Our animals are friendly and used to being handled and all of our staff have many years experience working with students of all ages and abilities.
As home schooling becomes more popular we have started offering all our school programs to home schoolers and we will come to your home to provide the classes. Contact us for more info.
