Night Zookeeper & Tagtiv8 Workshops and CPD Sessions

I’m delighted to announce that Night Zookeeper have partnered with Tagtiv8 to deliver amazing Literacy workshops in schools!

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.

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

They use these letters to create names of new magical animals!

Children will get creative producing artwork.

They’ll also log in and get writing on nightzookeeper.com

What will the children learn?

Children will learn the following skills throughout the workshops:

  • 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!

Our New Look Animal Dens: All you need to know…

As you may have seen, we recently launched a new look for the Animal Dens (where each animal lives) in Night Zookeeper. This aims to make it simpler for your child to use and to give them more choice in the activities they do. However, we know that with any change, it can take a little getting used to so we’ve put this guide together to help anyone who is wondering how to use it.

Earth Day Writing Prompts

Earth Day Writing Prompts

The Night Zoo is a very magical world indeed, but we want children to recognise the magic of the world they already live in. These Earth Day prompts were designed to try and do just that, by getting kids to engage with their imaginations and write creatively about nature, the Earth and the environment. Hopefully it will encourage them to think a little deeper about what the word “Earth” means to them, whilst developing the key skills they need to be a star writer.
