Marvellous Minibeasts

Living World learning experiences

Escape the classroom and surround yourself with nature at the iconic Wittenham Clumps.

Immerse your pupils in the great outdoors and peak their curiosity for all living things.

We will go on a habitat safari of woodlands, wildflower meadows and ponds, taking the time to get up close and personal with creatures great and small.

Your pupils will learn about adaptations and discover the vital role that invertebrates play in all ecosystems. Through handling and observation they will come away with a new respect and love for our ‘marvellous minibeasts’.
