Night Zookeeper & Tagtiv8 Workshops and CPD Sessions

I’m delighted to announce that Night Zookeeper have partnered with Tagtiv8 to deliver awesome and amazing workshops in schools across the UK this summer!

What happens at the events?

The events are incredibly interactive, creative and active! Take a look at some of the photos below to see what children will get up to throughout the day!

Children get active and begin developing ideas for the way their magical animals move and sound.

They collect letters to build words during a fun game of tagtiv8!

They then use these letters to create names of new magical animals to live in the Night Zoo!

Children will get creative producing artwork for their very own Night Zoo!

Finally, they’ll go into the digital world by setting up their nightzookeeper.com accounts.

What will the children learn?

Children will learn and develop the following skills throughout the day:

  • Children will learn how to write an article for their new Night Zookeeper blog.
  • They will develop their creative thinking skills throughout active Tagtiv8 sessions.
  • Students will learn how to work as part of a team.
  • Children will develop an understanding of being active and healthy.
  • They will learn resilience and problem-solving skills whilst taking part in word and sentence puzzles.
  • They’ll build their vocabulary and use words in new and unique ways.
  • Students will also develop their digital skills and learn about online safety during the Night Zookeeper sessions.
  • Plus much, much more!
