Nature Safari: Interactive Workshops

Bringing learning to life!

From animal handling to Forest Schools, our interactive workshops are designed to stimulate, educate and inspire students of all ages.

Our outstanding workshops are student

centred, interactive and engaging; 

embedding learning and promoting the 

self-development of every participant . They also meet with the National Curriculum and Ofsted criteria too!

Animal Encounters

Our "Animal Encounter" workshops allow students to interact with a selection of both common and exotic species; ranging from mammals to reptiles, invertebrates to amphibians*. 

 

All our animals are fully handleable, and students are encouraged to observe, touch and hold each of the animals present whilst being given lots of interesting facts about each creature; such as adaptations, habitat and survival skills.

 

Our extended encounters workshops include "animal info" worksheets (or colouring sheets if prefered), "make and do" craft activities, interactive "knowledge-test" games, story-time and additional handling/welfare activities; such as walking the rabbits and animal feeding.

Bushcraft Experiences

Our "Bushcraft Experience" workshops allow students to explore nature in an outdoor classroom environment, participating in activities such as campfires, den building, scavenger hunts, campfires and wood crafting using hand tools.

 

All resources are provided; from tools to tarpaulins, 

spot-it booklets to fire pits. All students are encouraged to explore and discover their environment, whilst developing skills in identification, safe tool use and wilderness survival.

 

Our Bushcraft Experiences are based on the Forest Schools ethos, and as such highly encourage sensory learning through environmental interactions. Students are given opportunities to develop themselves both physically, emotionally and socially; allowing holistic self development to take place in an enjoyable and memorable way.

 All participants are encouraged to get involved through positive feedback and rewards, as we feel this boosts the enjoyment and development of each individual hugely. Everyone is awarded with a "participation" gift to take home, plus a sticker to show off with pride too!
