I love sharing stories that encourage curiosity about animals and nature, and I am available for Early Years Foundations Stage and Key Stage 1 school visits within around 60 miles of Cambridge.
In a typical visit, I start with a reading of ‘A New Home for Little Fox’, and use the story as a springboard to discussion about minibeasts and other animals living on our doorsteps. The children are given the opportunity to explore magnifying glasses and other bug hunt paraphernalia. In the workshop element, we compare and contrast real or imaginary minibeasts and make up some fun, descriptive names for them.
Sessions last 45 minutes to an hour, and are suitable for full class or smaller groups. I am happy to discuss your school’s requirements beforehand to tailor each visit to your needs, ensuring compatibility with curriculum requirements.
Please contact me for details.
