Cuckoo Hall Reception Children Hold Snakes
Our reception classes were visited by ZooLab where they got to see some amazing animals, from slimy snails to slivering snakes.
This was about creating a fun learning environment which involves gaining the immediate interest of the pupils, exciting their curiosity and covering various subject areas.
Established for over 20 years, Zoo Lab is the UK's number 1 animal handling experience company. They have a national network of rangers and an 'animal team' that are on hand to help schools, companies, organisations and care homes to bring people closer to nature, and stimulate an interest in science, nature and learning.
Their work in schools is highly curriculum-driven, delivering educational experiences across all subjects and explaining the concepts of science in ways that children can see and touch.
At ZooLab they are all about working with animals to amaze, educate, inspire – and reach defined goals. In everything they do, animals are at the centre of things. The Rangers, live with and care for the animals at home: they are not items to be put away in a box but are part of their lives. They want their animals to be part of other people's lives too.
