Schools Education Programme
We offer a range of inspiring KS1 & KS2 education programmes aimed at exploring and understanding the natural world. Our highly skilled staff deliver engaging, hands on learning activities aimed at encouraging children to develop their understanding of nature and apply their scientific enquiry skills. All our education programmes are curriculum linked and cover programmes of study such as plants, animals, living things & their habitats, adaptations, growing and healthy eating.
