Do you want a dynamic, new
and exciting approach to engaging your pupils with the living world?
Using a wide array of
reptiles from snakes to frogs to tarantulas, we tailor our sessions to suite
your age group and current subject matter. Be it living things and their
habitats, evolution and inheritance or a general understanding of the living
world. Presentations also encompasses geography, basic genealogy and bodily function
giving a truly amazing and memorable experience for all. We are passionate
about educating youngsters and encourage a hands on attitude at all times.Suitable for nursery upwards, sessions are as little as £100 per class and last
approximately 1 and a half hours giving exceptional value for such a unique
teaching aid. We can either come to your site or you are welcome to come to the
Into the wild premises which have been specifically designed and built to be a
multi sensory experience and a visually stimulating space for children of all
Our school animal science workshops for the early years and foundation stage are very sensory fun hands on experiences for younger pupils ad complement the curriculum topic 'Understanding The World'
See It - Feel It
A practical, sensory experience introducing pupils to fascinating creatures with scales, fur or shells. The children are invited to guess what the different animals might feel like, and then compare this with their experience of actually touching them, and to think about how their senses might compare to how the animals feel things, and helps them to appreciate the importance of treating animals with care and respect.
Children see at first-hand how a tortoise plods and a snake slithers, and then try moving in the same way. They will be prompted to think about how each animal's way of moving plays a part in its adaptation to its environment.
Our primary school workshops are designed to inspire pupils through hands-on experience. They will each have the opportunity to touch or hold our amazing animals and will be encouraged to ask and answer questions.
We tailor our presentations to each school's requirements - so just ask if you would like us to combine workshop themes or create a completely new animal presentation to fit in with an area of study. We have workshops to complement the science, English and geography curriculums.
Each of the following workshops can be presented at an appropriate level for any primary school year group:
The Tropical Rain Forest
Predators and Prey
Pupils can also see first hand a carnivorous predator, as our bosc monitor eats live food
Habitats and Adaptation
Evolution & Inheritance
Animals from around the world
we can also cover specific countries and continents if required. just ask!
Teachers can use our sessions as a starting point for both fiction and non-fiction writing. Some possibilities could include, in KS1: instructions, non-chronological reports, recounts, or even riddles.
Then, in KS2: a newspaper report, acrostic poetry, explanation texts or persuasive writing.
"Our students had such a great time meeting the animals Kayleigh brought in with her. Norman was a huge hit exploring the hall and the pupils enjoyed watching him much his treats! Kayleigh was really great adapting her sessions to meet the complex needs of our school, and the animals brought huge smiles to all the pupils and staff that attended the session." High Park School
We would like to thank you for the work you did on our recent school booking.
The children were thoroughly engaged and had the most wonderful day.
As you may remember, we booked you to support our science topic of animal adaptations and habitats for our Year 5 and 6 children. The sheets that you catered towards our topic, enabled the children to make the most of your visit and were very appropriate for the task, their ability and age.
It was Kayleigh and Marcus who attended and their subject knowledge was second to none. I also learned lots during the session.
We felt the range of animals you brought and their different adaptations really helped develop the children's knowledge and understanding. They very much enjoyed the handling part of the session and the amazon milk frog and giant millipede went down a treat. There's no denying that the tortoises were a great hit too though - especially when we had to prise the door wedge out of one of their beaks! My favourite was definitely Olive, the monitor lizard, who stole my heart and I was lucky enough to get a cuddle too.
I was very impressed with not only the day but the outcomes of the follow on work. The children were confident and able in showing their new knowledge and progress was clear.
school, we feel that your costings are very reasonable and have recommended you
to other year groups. We will definitely be having you back, which is why
we bribed you with a free school lunch :)
We would very much like to thank you for bringing this topic to life. The children have not only had a fun way of accessing the topic but will have memories and knowledge that stay with them for a long time.
We look forward to seeing you back again in the future and wish yourselves and your business well.

We had been studying Classification, so it was fantastic to see and touch some of the amazing organisms, with Into the Wild. Kayleigh and her team have a real passion, enthusiasm and depth of knowledge about their animals that ensures immediate engagement. Students are reassured and quickly build confidence and are encouraged to handle the animals in a calm safe manner. Knowledge is quickly gained in a relaxed environment and students are confident to continually ask questions. Overall I can recommend this as an outstanding learning experience for students of any age group, interested in learning more about living things.
