Furry friends visit school
Queen’s Park Primary School, St Helens found out why so many schools visit Knowsley Safari as a field trip and why it is a popular destination with pupils and teachers. Learning and Discovery Officer Nikki Mallott from Knowsley Safari Park said: “Learning is a big part of life at Knowsley Safari and we have a dedicated learning and discovery team for schools that come to visit us. Visits to the park obviously encompass the safari drive and seeing the animals but we also deliver workshops for pupils that fit in with the national curriculum to complement a teachers learning mix. The same team that host the workshops also go out to schools as part of an outreach programme and use relevant learning aids to engage with the pupils. This outreach programme was tailored to suit the pupils and their current topics and we hope that the children from Queen’s Park Primary had a wonderful day finding out about all the different creatures”.
