We want to promote knowledge and understanding of the living world, capture interest, stimulate enquiry and encourage expression through first hand, real experiences of live and endangered animals and the natural environment. The park is the perfect place to observe, question and explore.
Education sessions are tailored towards the Curriculum Guidelines in Wales and England, and delivered in a 'hands-on' and friendly way - we engage and stimulate curiosity. Our aim is to enable children to engage to connect with the living world and accept joint responsibility and care for the natural environment.
A free resources CD is available for teachers: it's packed with lesson plans, worksheets, resources, pre and post-visit activities, photographs, references, mission statements, policies, animal puzzles and games, Anna's blogs, back issues of the in-house journal 'The Beagle', and much more!
The CD is freely available for schools who book visits to the park - ask for a disc to be posted out to you when you make your booking.
