Available throughout the Spring and Summer terms.

Join us for a fun and informative session using bug catching equipment whilst exploring Preston Park’s grounds searching for insects! Children will discuss habitats, identify and record their findings during the mini beast hunt as well as understanding how to gently and safely catch and release the creatures.

Key learning outcomes:

Students will practice working scientifically using simple equipment. They will identify their finds, using similarities and differences to help them to recognise that living things can be grouped and classified. They will describe different habitats and identify the living things they expect to find, and have found there.

Main learning approaches:

Active learning
Collaborative learning

Planning a visit:

The workshop lasts approximately 1 hour.

Most leave plenty of time for schools to combine led sessions with independent exploration of the Museum, especially our treasured Victorian Street.

£40 per workshop (up to 30 children), plus £1.50 admission charge per child.

Spaces to eat packed lunches are provided when booking led sessions.
