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.
ZooLab have a whole host of comic capers in store for your 2018 summer reading activities! It's sure to spark the imagination of children up and down the country and encourage them to head to their libraries over the summer!
Inspired by much-loved comic characters, 2018 will see the ZooLab animals participating in all sorts of mischief, pranks, escapades and shenanigans as they descend upon their local village fete. What could possibly go wrong?!
At first it seems our animals are solely using their mischievous talents to win ALL the prizes. We soon find out that they are actually using their talents for a charitable purpose! They plan to send their winnings to their endangered pen-pal in Africa who happens to be a Rhinoceros!
As you would expect from ZooLab, we’ll be using role play, storytelling and animal handling to fire children’s imagination, confidence and love of the written and spoken word
