All classes follow the same structure:
An interactive ‘Aim’ that highlights the key words and learning objectives for that particular class.
A series of interactive games and demonstrations that require the children to work together and also put forward their own ideas.
The chance to come face to face with one of our creatures that we have learnt about (starfish or crab).
A review in the form of quick quizzes and active demonstrations of how much they enjoyed their experience.

This class is aimed at pre-school but can also be tailored to early Primary classes. The children are introduced to the rock pool environment and have to help clean it up first! After tidying up the rock pool they all get a chance to learn about the types of creatures that live in the rock pools, how they have adapted to live there and even what they feel like!
This fun and interactive class covers introductions to Food Chains and Food Webs. The children end up all of a tangle once they have created their own Food Web and get the chance to demonstrate a Food Chain in front of the rest of the class. After they have de-tangled themselves they get to learn about a creature in their food web and even the chance to come face to face with them!

This class introduced children to the how’s and why’s of classification. There is acting and interaction aplenty in this session while the children learn the differences between invertebrates and vertebrates and other groups within the vertebrate family.
During this session the children cover the zones of the beach and are introduced to the concept of ‘competition’ during an interactive game. The concept of ‘adaptation’ is also covered and include a look at the specific adaptations of a rock pool inhabitant and the opportunity to see some of these adaptations in action!
