Key Stage 2

Chester Zoo is the perfect venue for an educational day out for your keen and eager Key Stage 2 pupils.

We know your students care about the environment and have enquiring minds and we offer a great range of curriculum-linked workshops to complement your classroom topics and bring learning to life.

Have a browse at the workshops we offer here.

We have some exciting new workshops lined up for the new academic year and we’re especially thrilled about Wild Winter, a special seasonal treat. In this workshop your pupils are invited for a walk through our magical wood, learning about native species and ending with a meeting with Santa Claus himself! It’s a limited run session so we suggest booking early for Wild Winter.

You can see all about our taught sessions at Key Stage 2 workshops or if you prefer a self-guided visit you might be interested in our trails and activities. We’ve put these together for you to enjoy doing with your class in the zoo. 

If you want to book or find out more, our contact details are on the Book Your Visit page.
