Kingscourt Garden welcomed ‘Wild Science’

The ‘Wild Science’ workshops proved very popular with visitors and current families at our Open Morning here at Kingscourt on Saturday.  Amber, the ranger from Wild Science, brought along a wide range of animals to be explored including a tarantula, a corn snake, bearded dragon, hedgehog, rabbits and guinea pigs.  Children of all ages, spent the morning learning about how to care for the animals as well as finding out where they originated from.

When they could drag themselves away from the small creatures, children also enjoyed making their own pebble animal, having their faces painted, identifiying animal skulls, printing, working their way along the sensory line with our outdoor teaching specialist, Ms Caroline Hubbard, animal orienteering, plant potting and playing in our extensive garden.

Headteacher, Mr Jamie Lewis said, “It was wonderful to see so many families enjoying themselves together on Saturday morning and, for the new families, having the chance to show them around the school and grounds too.”
