Below is a summary of each School Workshop

SuperParrot’s Super Scientists


Children will be encouraged to work scientifically by using their observation skills, asking questions and identifying the difference between plants and animals. They will have the opportunity to verbally group/classify living things in a range of ways and build upon their scientific vocabulary to gain confidence describing the variety of animals and plants at Paradise Park.

Survive and Thrive


Pupils will be able to discern the difference between what animals – including humans – need to survive (water, food and air) and to thrive (shelter, safety, enrichment). They will be given the chance to examine a range of enclosures and examine the needs and wants of different animals.

The class will be encouraged to build upon their working scientifically processes by asking questions, identifying and grouping a range of animals and plants using tables and Venn diagrams. They will use existing knowledge and fact-files to help them learn more about our animals and gain confidence discussing animals using scientific vocabulary.

The Key to Success


This workshop is perfect for pupils to further their identifying and grouping skills. They will be shown how classification keys are structured and then be given the opportunity to create some for themselves, using teamwork and discussion to help them understand how living things can be classified.

Lead the Way


The class will be introduced to the idea of ‘birds eye view’ and begin to discuss human and physical landmarks on a map. Children will be asked to look at a map of Paradise Park and ‘lead the way’ to the next destination on the trail. With map reading as the focus, the children will be able to explore the Park with confidence, understanding the difference between a map and an aerial photograph and the features of both.

National Curriculum Links: Geography – Geographical skills and fieldwork

Where in the World?


Children will be encouraged to locate the natural habitat of our birds and animals on a map. They will use fact-files and the information provided at our enclosures to understand the different environments of the countries of origin and be encouraged to use atlases and globes to locate areas and transcribe them onto their own maps, building their geographical knowledge and confidence.
