Curriculum Topics
Wildlife, Safaris and Sea Life Centres

Obviously, seeing a troop of monkeys remove the wipers from the coach is going to be the highlight of your day out for a lot of children, but there is plenty more to be gained from trip to study the local, and not so local, wildlife. This section covers zoos and safari parks, sea life centres, as well as places to study British wildlife. If you want to study animals, birds, or fish, as part of key stage 2, 3 and 4 science, then see below for inspiration.

The UK has a wonderfully diverse array of natural wildlife, especially ornithological and places like the RSPB and WWT have centres up and down the country where you can go to study the habitats of our feathered friends. As well as helping your class understand the importance of our native wildlife, you will also be helping to support the protected areas which act as havens for species that would otherwise be under threat.

All these venues give great opportunities for cross-curricular study, especially biological adaptation, the geographical impact we humans can have on such delicate eco-systems through climate change, and environmental miss-management, and how we can protect them, both for future generations, and for our own well-being.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect Wildlife experience for your school trip.

FSC Outreach: Living Things and Their Habitats



Working in your school grounds or local area your tutor will ensure that your pupils get a hands-on learning experience in a Covid-secure way.  Children will explore their surroundings observing living things in the environment.

The day will help children to describe the basic needs habitats provide for animals and describe simple food chains, as well as care for living things and the world around them. Pupils will benefit from learning outside the classroom, build confidence and resilience and use their curiosity to engage with the natural world....

The venues specialising in sea life are always popular with children, perhaps because it gives them an insight into what is normally hidden from view. The examples listed here offer tailor-made workshops, ideal for allowing your class to gain hands-on experience and to fully understand the issues and challenges associated with marine biology.

Clearly, despite the frequent rural sightings of leopards, tigers and other big cats, some wildlife is going to be completely new to your class. They have probably seen them on television, but that is no substitute for getting up close and personal with some of our planet’s more unusual fauna. Zoos and safari parks have changed and are no longer just somewhere to take the kids for an ice-cream and the chance to marvel at the giraffes. Even the more traditional parks are changing what they offer, developing more intelligent ways of engaging their visitors. And the ability to create artificial biospheres means it is now possible to visit a tropical jungle without leaving our temperate climate.
