With our Living things and their Habitats Workshop: Who’s Coming to Dinner?

This popular and fun workshop has been especially designed for Year 2 pupils to get hands on with animal specimens. Pupils prepare for an animal dinner party by naming animals, micro-habitats and sources of food for a range of animals in the local environment.

1 hour workshop only costs £68 and is available Tuesday to Friday all year round. 

Entry to Cliffe Castle Museum in Keighley is free and you can spend time outside with our park explorer bags or do your own mini-beast hunt!
