This fantastic new half day workshop is a wonderful way to learn about all the types of British wildlife that could visit a garden - whether it’s the school’s wildlife garden or the students gardens.
Aimed at KS2,3 & 4, the workshop looks at ways to attract butterflies, moths, solitary bees, amphibians and birds into the garden using a mixture of colourful photographs and amazing exclusive Wild Owl videos of friendly solitary bees, colourful butterflies, moths, amphibians, mice & badgers and of course birds.
The content is very simple but very inspiring and will be of huge benefit to help children understand the simple things wildlife needs and also what not to do (eg. did you know hedgehogs are lactose intolerant so milk upsets their stomaches etc)
The workshop is ideal for either working with individual classes or in the hall with Year groups and I will also be available to visit the school’s wildlife area to give advice on ways to improve it to attract more widlife.
