A school day at Gauntlet...

Bringing your class to Gauntlet will be a day they won't forget - with the added bonus that they will learn something as well!

Gauntlet is continually developing its educational programme and we look to incorporate all aspects of the teaching curriculum.
We cover all the relevant topics whilst making it educational, fun and enjoyable.

Check out what iPLANit KIDS got up to on a recent all day visit to Gauntlet! (www.iplanitkids.org.uk)

During your visit you will learn about:   

* Animals and the care of them. 

* Conservation and protection.     

* Habitat.     

* Predators, prey and the food chain.     

* The 5 senses and how birds use them.     

* Flight and bird formation.

We tailor each visit to each groups requirements. As a general itinary your group will:

* Arrive at center, have a look around.

* Private hands on flying session meeting a variety of Gauntlets residents.

* Lunch break

* Vulture feeding

* Flying demonstration

* Time for activity sheets, sketching, photography - whatever you would like your group to do

* More birds, and then back on the bus!

Costs for the day are:

£6 per child, teaching staff free.

There is a minimum charge of £240 inc VAT for group sizes under 40.
