Our selection of interactive, hands-on workshops for 3-5 year olds are a great way to introduce children to ideas about caring for our planet and the animals upon it.

CROSS CURRICULAR: I WANT TO BE A DIVER

Imagine you’re a diver! Let’s get to know our fish, sharks and keepers a little better. Using underwater video watch one of our divers at work and learn some dive sign language, before getting hands on with some real dive kit.  An engaging, cross curricular play based workshop designed to develop skills to support Early Learning Goals.

SCIENCE: FIND A SECRET SUPERHERO

Journey to where the Amazon greets the ocean, then meet creatures of the world's rainforests that are unlikely super heroes. Children investigate different creatures' abilities to survive in their habitat and get a close up view of our Hissing cockroaches. An interactive story and multi-activity play session addresses the EYFS areas of learning.  

MATHS: PUZZLING PENGUINS

Pick up a penguin! This polar-themed story and play session focuses on matching, sorting, ordering and number. Plenty of free play activities to support the learning of early maths concepts. This session has been designed specifically for the Foundation Stage.

ENGLISH: THE BIG BLUE SEA

Dive under the water to find out who lives in the big blue sea. Can you help our marine friends to give our story a happy ending? This story and play session allows children to develop their imaginative language skills and is suitable for the Foundation Stage and for younger or less able Key Stage 1 pupils.

ART & DESIGN: TURTLE ART

This session allows children to develop skills in the expressive arts. They will learn more about The Deep's River turtles before making a turtle puppet of their own. This session links with the Art and Design curriculum, Maths work on patterns and Citizenship: Caring for animals in the environment.

SCIENCE & CITIZENSHIP: SEASIDE SPRING CLEAN

People keep leaving litter about! Can you help the seaside animals get free of all that rubbish? This story and play session encourages children to show care and concern for living things and for the environment.
