We'll come to you - FREE ZOOM sessions and Assemblies
We are now able to deliver free ZOOM sessions, brining the National Park right into your classrooms. These can be for whole year groups or individual classes. Sessions are tailored to your requirements and will only involve your school and no other external audiences. You can join our ZOOM room or we can join yours. Choose from the options listed here.
We provide assemblies for schools in and around the National Park. Primary assemblies include an introduction to the habitats and wildlife of the National Park and special things young people can do in the North York Moors.
Our popular Secondary school assembly programme includes career options in the conservation sector and an overview of environmental issues in the National Park.
We'll come to you - activities
Between September to April we can come to you to deliver the following interactive classroom based activities for Key Stage 2 children; Classifying and Identifying Animals and Evolution. Please contact us for further information and costs.
Groups with special needs
We are happy to adapt or develop activities to suit the special needs of groups or individuals wherever possible.
