Workshops and Tours

Alternatively, your school can spend more of the day with us and complete one of our curriculum linked workshops or tours. All of these can be adapted to the needs of your school, and the age group attending.

Marvellous Minibeasts* - A fully immersive hands on experience to discover the hidden world of the minibeasts. Children are introduced to animals from differnt habitats, and we explore what they are, and where they are from. This workshop is best suited as a sensory experience for younger groups but can be adapted for older children as a stepping stone for further research back in the classroom.

Rainforest Roam - An immersive experience which takes you on a tour through the habitats of Plantasia. As we explore the hot desert and traverse the humid rainforest, we will introduce you to a number of our animals and plants.

Rainforest Rangers - What are rainforests? Where are they located?Why are they being destroyed? Discover the plants, animals and tribes that are found there.

Roots, Shoots, Flowers and Leaves - Children will never forget the parts of the plant after discovering them inside the tropical hothouse. The lesson also focuses on the functions of the plant parts, and the role of plants in the environment. 

Easy Peasy Seed Germination - What does a seed need to germinate? Scientific investigation to measure, analyse and draw conclusions from the experiment.
