We can provide lessons that wont just teach the children it will fire their imagination to learn something new.

A visit from Animal Magic Parties will prove an excellent enrichment opportunity for your class/ school that requires minimal organisation - as it comes to you!

Busy teachers often do not have the time to locate animal resources for observation in the classrooms and this is where Animal Magic girl with corn snakecan step in.

Animal Magic Parties can provide fun and educational animal handling opportunities for all of the children in class. These sessions will be delivered at an appropriate level, ensuring differentiation and meeting Every Child Matters outcomes.

We can produce lesson plans that complement your current schemes of work and National Curriculum requirements, either as an intro to a new topic or as a recap to a delivered lesson. Lessons can be tailored to your requirements, and if several sessions are required, can be adapted to meet the requirements of different ages/key stages.

During the session we will encourage the children to touch and sometimes feed the animals, ask questions and find out fun facts. We can work with individual classes, or larger, walk-through groups. Learning is checked throughout the session via question and answer.

We offer the following animal workshops:
