If you can’t come to us maybe we can come to you, with our outreach packages our expert staff will come to your school. Working in your school grounds or local area your tutor will ensure that your pupils get a hands-on learning experience in a Covid-secure way.
Pupils will explore their school grounds, collecting, identifying and grouping animals and consider how they are adapted to their habitats. They will care for living things and the environment in which they are found.
The day will encourage students to investigate and work scientifically and be curious about the world around them.
