Session details suggestion:
Teaching the Teachers:
As a teacher you will be asked to take children on trips to local attractions as part of their learning outside the classroom.
This session will help you understand how a visit to Bristol Zoo will provide:
a safe and welcoming venue
an educational stimulus for your group
an engaging fun day out
An education officer will take you through one of our sessions, which will be relevant to the age of the children you are training to teach.
You will meet live animals, take part in the activities, understand the links with the national curriculum and be able to ask questions.
The session costs £42.00.
