Curriculum Based - Key Stage 1 and 2Curriculum Based - Key Stage 1 and 2

Our diverse and unique coverage of animal, nature and outdoor activities ensure that we can adapt many of the Key Stage curriculum based topics and subjects across a whole range of interactive and educational activities.

Key Stage 1

A visit from Animal Days Out supports outcomes in the KS1 curriculum 

Life Processes:

♦ The differences between things that are living and things that have never been alive

♦ That animals, including humans, move, feed, grow, use their senses and reproduce to relate life processes to animals and plants found in the local environment.

Humans and Other Animals:

♦ Humans and other animals need food and water to stay alive

♦ How to treat animals with care and sensitivity

♦ That humans and other animals can produce offspring and that these offspring grow into adults about the senses that enable humans and other animals to be aware of the world around them.

Variation and Classification:

♦ Group living things according to observable similarities and differences.

♦ Living things in their environment

♦ Care for the environment.   

Key Stage 2

A visit from Animal Days Out supports outcomes in the KS2 curriculum 

Life Processes:

♦ That the life processes common to humans and other animals include nutrition, movement, growth and reproduction

♦ That the life processes common to plants include growth, nutrition and reproduction

♦ To make links between life processes in familiar animals and plants and the environments in which they are found

Humans and Other Animals:

♦ Movement that humans and some other animals have skeletons and muscles to support and protect their bodies and to help them to move

Variation and Classification:

♦ To make and use keys how locally occurring animals and plants can be identified and assigned to groups

♦ That the variety of plants and animals makes it important to identify them and assign them to groups

♦ About ways in which living things and the environment need protection


♦ About the different plants and animals found in different habitats

♦ How animals and plants in two different habitats are suited to their environment

All our workshops encourage group discussion and interaction and we invite questions as we come round with the animals appropriate to your workshop.

Schools Reviews

"The children had a fantastic time and enjoyed meeting you all. I really hope we have the opportunity to work with you again." - Mrs Gillett from Copnor Infants School - Portsmouth

"I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you to you and your wonderful staff for the numerous workshops that you put on for us yesterday. The staff room and classrooms have been buzzing about the day, and it is evident that the children were all totally enthused. The year 6 teacher told me it was lovely to see their class with the look of a year 1 awe and wonder in their eyes. Your teams were so knowledgeable about the animals, and supported the children in their experiences. The staff have actually asked if you could come back next year! Please pass on my thanks to the team." - Mrs Brown from Applecroft Primary School - Welwyn Garden City

"The children have all gained so much from the experience and teachers have cleverly organised curriculum opportunities so that I'm still seeing photos and work relating to snakes, spiders etc around the school! - Mrs Lilley from Birkbeck Primary School - Sidcup
