Our animal and plant collections are fantastic living examples that can enable your pupils to develop a better understanding of structure, function, behaviour and the many other topics and concepts that are part of the curriculum. Alternatively, the zoo offers a great location for activities week and reward trips, with a bit of stealth learning thrown in.
