SCIENCE: STAYING ALIVE

How are our bodies like those of marine creatures? How are they different? Observe and compare animal characteristics in this enjoyable multi-activity workshop which uses live animals. This session links with KS1 Science programme of study: Animals, including humans and Living things and their habitats.

SCIENCE: BESIDE THE SEASIDE

Last night there was a big storm in the North Sea and some of the seaside animals got lost – can you help them get home? This multi-activity workshop takes the children on a seaside journey where they investigate the diversity of the habitats and the range of animals that make their homes there and why. The session links with the Science programme of study: Working scientifically, Animals, including humans and Living things and their habitats.  

SCIENCE: FIND A SECRET SUPERHERO

Journey to where the Amazon greets the ocean. Meet creatures that are unlikely super heroes and identify the special skills that help them survive in their habitat. Pupils gain practical first-hand experience, observing and touching live Hissing cockroaches, encouraging them to ask questions about how the creatures survive in the natural world.   

GEOGRAPHY & SCIENCE: MY POLAR HOME

Where are the cold places in the world? What kind of animals live there? This multi-activity workshop allows children to investigate polar animals in their habitats with the help of NASA images and the fantastic 3D revolving magic planet! This KS1 session links with Science work on habitats and with Geography work on oceans and different temperature zones of the world.

GEOGRAPHY: ALL AROUND THE WORLD

Pick up your passports and travel the world! We start by looking at NASA images on the fantastic 3D magic planet. Pupils complete activities which encourage them to appreciate the amazing variety of our world including climates, landscapes and inhabitants. This multi-activity workshop links with Geography work on oceans, continents and temperature zones, and with Science work on habitats and citizenship.

ART & DESIGN: TURTLE ART

This story and art session allows children to learn about The Deep’s River turtles before making a turtle puppet of their own considering colour, pattern and shape. This session links with Art and Design curriculum, Maths work on patterns, Citizenship: Caring for animals in the environment. For KS1, if requested, we can replace the puppet story with a short presentation.

ART & DESIGN: WHAT’S UNDER THE WATER?

Look closely at the weird and wonderful creatures of The Deep and find out more about their amazing colours, shapes and patterns. This multi-activity workshop is suitable for pupils in Years 1 and 2, allowing them to explore some of the visual and tactile qualities of the marine environment.
