Animal Education Sessions

New for 2017/18 - these fantastic educational sessions tie in with the KS1 and KS2 curriculum. Choose between "Minibeasts" – an introduction to invertebrates, including a meet and greet with the likes of our giant snails, cockroaches and stick insects and "Rainforest" – an introduction to the amazing diversity of the world’s rainforests. Children will learn to identify the various layers of the rainforest, the animals which live in them and to classify them as omnivores, herbivores or carnivores.

Author workshops

A J Kecojevic, the author of Hobbledown - the book, is now running creative writing workshops at schools focusing on rhymes and imagination. Have a look here to get involved.
