Educational Handling Sessions and Talks

Allow your students to immerse themselves within your topics. Geoff Petty, Britain’s leading expert in teaching methods, describes that students learn through doing. Rent a beast does exactly this, it gives them this opportunity. Each talk is tailored made to meet your curriculum needs. By having us within your school or nursery we make learning come to life and OFSTED a little bit happier!

We offer key stage focussed interactive talks and beast handling sessions with a variety of invertebrates.

Key Stage One Yr1: How to identify invertebrates, understand the terms herbivore and carnivore. The structure of invertebrates in comparison with other animals.

Key Stage One Yr2: Life stages of our invertebrates and their basic needs for their survival. Learn about the habitats and how they fit in with their ecosystem and food chains.

Lower Key Stage Two Yr3: Invertebrate nutrition and thier physiology.

Lower Key Stage Two Yr4: How invertebrates are suited and adapted to their environment.

We also cover topics for the Early Years Foundation Stage, Keys Stages 3-4 as well as FE topics. Prices depend on how long you want us for. It can be an hour, two hours, half a day or a full day. We can arrange packages to suit, for example three different talks to three different year groups in one day, each focussed on their learning needs. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
