Primary Schools

We currently offer the following sessions for Primary Schools:

 

- Sensory session! This is a great one where we explore different textures and smells that can be found in  nature. We have various artefacts which we bring along from the Spikey hedgehog to the smooth shells to the soft fur. The different smells which animals and plants can give off. Can you work out which one is the stinky curry plant? The refreshing mint? Or the calming chamomile? Are you brave enough to guess what is in our touch boxes?

- Sandpit fun! We have created a wonderful sandpit with special animals you can find on the beach. You'll learn how each of these animals have their own special superpowers! How have they adapted to their environment? Who is the predator and who is the prey? You can hire out the large sandpit for the whole week or if you want just a short session we can bring along our smaller one. We have certain items in our sandpit which shouldn't be found in the environment which links in nicely to pollution topics. 

- Get out and about! Explore the Nursery grounds or come to visit our garden in Wallisdown. See what animals you can find. Get bug hunting with our pooters. See how great your animal impressions can be. Can you Buzz like a Bee? Slither like a snake?

- Habitats! Every animal is adapted for it's environment. We are very flexible with these sessions. It can happen with looking at the school grounds, drawing it out and working out what animals live where. We can bring along pooters to catch minibeasts and create perfect habitats for them. We can create ways to survey for animals on the school ground e.g. camera traps, footprints and visual surveys. 

Endangered Species! When you hear of Endangered Species you normally think of Elephants and Rhinos, however right here in England we have some amazing animals which are endangered. This topic looks at different animals which are endangered right here in England. We'll look at success stories such as the Red Kites and Otters.

We aim to tailor all of our sessions  to your own requirements and all sessions come with activities to enhance and continue learning afterwards.

Coming soon!

Our book 'The Adventures of Vern' is to be released later in the year. With the book we will be creating a schools pack full of information on species found in the book. There will be various worksheets surrounding the book which incorporate the Maths, English and Science National curriculum. 

Prices:

£30 for 1 hour sessions.

£70 for the habitats survey (x2 one hour sessions also include putting out the camera trap and footprint survey on the school grounds).

£100 to hire the Sandpit for the week.

Additional costs: If out of a 10 mile radius then an additional mileage cost will be added.
