In order to enthuse and excite our children about nature, the environment, and the world around them whilst helping them to achieve real curriculum outcomes, we invited Zoolab to come along and host a special Halloween workshop. They used a combination of ZooLab animals, songs, rhymes, and games to develop language, physical, social and emotional development. It also made for a powerful and unique bonding activity between the children and their nursery teachers!
The children took part in a Halloween story workshop about a witch and wizard, and were brave enough to hold some of the exotic animals and reptiles – including a snake, giant snail, hissing cockroach, guinea pigs and a tarantula! All the children and parents were really keen to get involved, and everybody had a great time.
