Minibeasts Early Years; First Stage; KS 1, 2 (Ages 3 - 11)
What is a minibeast? What do they have inside them? How are our bodies like/unlike theirs? How do we group animals and why? Children get a fun introduction to invertebrates and classification. They get to question, to investigate and learn about scientific discovery, guided by their own expert ZooLab ranger. It's an experience that makes scientific discovery real and terminology come alive - from vertebrates (represented by one of our snake team members) and invertebrates, to arthropods and myriapods, molluscs, crustaceans and arachnids!
This show is very active and gets the kids moving about pretending to be the animals. It should be fun and performed with energy and enthusiasm that keeps the kids attention. Each ranger can have their own take on the movements as long as it engages the kids! This workshop will encourage children to lead an active lifestyle through learning about movement. Children will benefit by increasing their numeracy, imagination and teamwork skills.
Wriggly Roadshow Early Years; First Stage; KS 1 (Ages 3 - 7)
An animal experience full of movement, excitement and active learning. What better way of understanding how animals move than trying to move like they do! Children get to move like a snail, a snake, a rabbit, a tarantula – and many, many more!

Senses & Textures (All about me) Early Years; First Stage; KS 1 (Ages 3 - 7)
Children make hands-on discoveries of animal textures and senses in an animal handling experience that is suitable for all – from new intake to SEN classes.
Starting with their own senses, children get to explore and understand how animals use their senses within their habitats. How do animals perceive their surroundings and how well are their senses adapted to them? How do their senses compare with our own? Why have animals evolved to have certain textures?
Rainforest Adventurer Early Years; First Stage; KS 1 (Ages 3 - 7)
Children get to go on an action-packed rainforest adventure through the rainforest layers, meeting various animals – from stepping over snails on the forest floor, to watching dancing stick insects in the under storey, to seeing how snakes climb and how tarantulas jump out of burrows. And they'll meet canopy-dwelling tree frogs too. It's all part of a story-telling approach that makes the rainforest real and helps children to see how it affects us all.
Especially important around Bonfire night!
The Zagaro Early Years; First Stage; KS 1 (Ages 3 - 7)
A storyboard adventure show based on a famous children’s story! Our heroic ZooLab Rat takes a trip through the deep, dark wood and happens to meet a whole host of fantastic animals along the way, some of which want to eat him!
This story entails matching up (classification) and identification in real and imaginary situations. It involves creativity and imagination, interactions and conversations between animals, repetitions of phrases and movements as part of a story progression. It teaches children that strength doesn't always win, as the clever little rat outsmarts predators much bigger or more dangerous than he is. This workshop is also a very gentle introduction to the topic of habitats for younger children – and there's a real surprise at the end, in the form of a twist in the tale.
ZooLab is for people of all ages and in all places.

Our presenter will bring the world’s most exciting habitat alive with tales of visiting the Rainforest. Marvel at their tales of this wonderful habitat and of course, you will meet some of its astonishing animals.
They will be encouraged to discover the different textures of our animals as well as the senses they use to see, smell and hear!
A great, all round workshop for everyone from your new intake to special needs classes.
Your children will find themselves jumping like a rabbit, hopping like a frog and even taking part in the Millipede conga! As always, our special ZooLab animals will be on hand to help.
