Hands-on wild life and nature workshops for schools

Lively 'Minibeast and more' workshops for FS to Y6. Hands-on, well-paced sessions with a charismatic, well-pitched approach guaranteed to enthuse children about the living world around them. Sessions delivered by experienced practictioner Steven Lewis-Neill. Based in Manchester but travel nationwide. Join other teachers on our Facebook Community group. Sessions perfect for a 'Wow' introduction to Habitats topics, Minibeasts, Classification, Nocturnal Animals, Animals including humans etc. Half day/Full day visits can be as flexible as you like. It is possible to see every class in the day if you are single form and we have a base - great value.

As Featured on TV

Our work focusing on nature and wildlife education was highlighted on the Channel M breakfast show. We were invited to discuss our efforts in bringing nature into primary schools.

Bespoke Wild Life and Animal Workshops

WildWorkshops takes pride in providing tailored visits. With our background in primary education, we can design days that perfectly align with any nature-themed event or focus area, such as water, light, animals, pets, plants, rainforests, school grounds, or eco-schools.

Children Examining Wild Life

Structured Lessons

WildWorkshops offers sessions tailored to four distinct levels: Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2, and Upper Key Stage 2. However, we're flexible and capable of working with students up to Year 8. For each level, except Foundation Stage, we provide two-tiered modules. This structure enables children to progress and expand on their learning from previous years.

Qualified and Experienced Teacher

This workshop is delivered by Steven Lewis-Neill, a fully qualified Primary Teacher with experience across all Key Stages. As a former Science Coordinator, I've provided staff training in Scientific Enquiry. My research in Liverpool primary schools focused on animals' positive impact on children's self-esteem. With an MSc in Animal Behaviour, I founded WildWorkshops. Now, I offer schools practical science workshops inspired by British wildlife, aligning with the science curriculum.
