Cailin | September 15, 2019 | News



It’s time for the second blog of the series, this week I’m going to be answering the FAQ’s of the workshops we carry out and how they can be made unique to your own requirements.

What is a Wild Science Animal Workshop?
Our Animal Workshops are carried out by specially trained experts and will always be a “Hands-on experience” Our experts will bring a full range of animals that fit your chosen topic, each animal will be presented to the students and they will learn about the animals as they hold them, having the animals in their very own hands keeps students extremely interested and eager to ask questions meaning they learn much more and makes complicated topics such as Classification, exciting to learn.

What age do my students need to be?
We offer Animal Workshops for all ages, our Nursery and Pre-school sessions are a great introduction to animals for children and include basic facts about habitats, the foods animals eat and how to handle the animals.

What topics do you cover?
We have a wide range of popular topics, all of which are listed on our website. These include Rainforests, Classification and Adaptations; as well as our popular topics we are also able to offer bespoke sessions based on what you’re currently teaching, you’re able to discuss with our friendly office team when booking what you would like our experts to cover during your session and your expert will choose the animals that best fit that topic.

How long are your sessions?
Our sessions start at 30 minutes minimum. Our most common time for school sessions is 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Are you able to cover a whole school?
Yes, you are able to book us to visit your school for the day, you are able to decide the length of the time you would like us to spend with each class that works best with the number of students you have. Our office team are able to help you plan your day that suits yours and your students needs best. Provided there are less than 30 students in a group all students will be able to hold each animal.

Are you able to offer sessions to SEN children?
Yes, our SEN sessions differ slightly from our usual Animal Workshops as our experts mix education with therapy, we focus on the sensory side of the session as well as the education side. Our SEN sessions are of course bespoke to each students needs and we offer sessions at all levels of education with a softer approach to learning.

How will an Animal Workshop benefit my students?
We have a wide range of exotic animals that many students have only been able to see photographs of, being able to see them up close is truly fascinating for them and certainly offers a unique learning experience that keeps them locked into the session and eager to learn more. It teaches students how to handle animals correctly and also helps to conquer any fears.

How do I book a session?
Booking a session with us is extremely easy due to our helpful office team that are able to provide you with all of the information you need and can book your session in over the phone.
