Our range of seasonal workshops are designed to tie in with the national curriculum and will create a fun, stimulating learning environment.

The Great ZooLab Bughunt - EYFS, KS 1, 2. Early Years, First, Second Stage. (Ages 2 - 11)
Springtime - EYFS, KS1. Early Years, First Stage. (Ages 2 - 7)
A special look at life cycles for younger children! We demonstrate how our special ZooLab animals deal with the changing of the seasons and what happens in springtime. In turn, we look at how each animal reproduces and prepares for the season ahead. Where possible, our rangers will try and bring you examples of eggs and baby animals. A great way to entertain and educate children at a special time of year!
Animals in winter – EYFS, KS 1, 2. Early Years, First, Second Stage. (Ages 3 - 11)
How do animals spend the winter?
Nocturnal Animals - KS 1, 2. Early Years, First, Second Stage. (Ages 3 - 11)
Children get to think about their own routines such as eating and sleeping – and to ask, 'What do animals do?' For example: why are they active at night in hot deserts (fewer predators)? How have they adapted (how do they feel and see)? How do predators operate (spiders hunting)? How do they mate and breed – and how is this affected by whether they are predators or prey?
The workshop explores how animals use their senses for protection and hunting (from antennae to a snake’s tongue and heat signatures). It looks at crepuscular animals – who are active at dawn and dusk, such as rats) and at daytime animals and insects such as butterflies – animals like us!
Chinese New Year - EYFS, KS1. Early Years, First Stage. (Ages 2 - 7)
Taking place from now to the end of February, our Chinese New Year workshops tells the story at the heart of the Chinese calendar as part of a great cross-curricular animal handling workshop. Not only is ZooLab's Chinese New Year workshops a lot of fun, it complements the curriculum in several areas including:
- English and literacy
Meg and Mog - EYFS, KS 1. Early Years, First Stage. (Ages 3 - 7)
A pupil from a local wizarding school has an important assignment - to investigate a creepy house and report what lies inside! Dare your pupils help with this scary assignment? Minibeasts are just some of the creatures encountered in the house! We report whether they are vertebrates or invertebrates and what food they eat! Hopefully they won't eat us! This workshop covers elements in EYFS and KS1 Classification and Minibeasts as well as KS1 Animals including Humans.
Meet Zola – one of Santa’s hardest working elves! Santa sees how hard Zola has been working and decides that Zola deserves to be taken on a special trip.
Follow the story of Zola the Elf on a wonderful Christmas adventure that begins on Christmas Eve when Santa is out and about delivering presents to children all over the world. Zola travels over Africa, to India and through America via Australia, encountering a variety of fascinating local creatures!
Children get to decide what kinds of Christmas present would be best suited to each animal they meet! Santa and Zola stop off in the UK before making their way back home to the North Pole…only to find they have brought back another animal friend (who has hitched a crafty ride)!
This year, our summer workshop is really out of this world! Join the ZooLab team as they find out more about animals in space (animals were in space before humans – can you believe it?!)
After being inspired by all these amazing animal facts, the intrepid ZooLab team decide to head off into . They split into two teams and decide to have a – to ! One team fly aboard the ZooLander, the other take to the skies in the Bug Rover!
The two teams are now in a desperate contest to reach Mars first. On each of the Spacecraft we find out which animals adaptations are best suited to space exploration! Trouble hits both spacecraft and they soon tumble to the ground – only for us to find out that it was a product of their imagination all along!
