The Earth & Environment

The science and beauty of our natural world and the role we play

A brief summary

We have two separate Earth and Environment shows.
Our Environment show tours habitats of the Earth, foodwebs and the role humans play within the ecosystem. The Planet Earth show includes more physical geography about the formation of Earth and tectonic movements of our planet. Both shows are available for KS2 children.

The show varies a great deal for different audiences.
More details of timing, capacity and curriculum links are below.

Scientific Enquiry

We want to stimulate curiosity in science for all, regardless of age, gender, background or ability. Our science shows:

  • Allow for questions to share interests and explore ideas
  • Treat every child as unique, supporting personal development
  • Promote observation, prediction and exploration
  • Encourage imagination, creative and critical thinking
  • Support and enhance the Curriculum across subject areas
