Night Zookeeper are excited to announce that we have confirmed the first KidsMeet event of 2012, which will be held at Sir John Lillie Primary school in Fulham. We have been working with Lee Duffy, a year 6 teacher at the school to organise a suitable date and timetable for the day. The event has unfortunately had to be rescheduled due to a teaching strike falling on the original date of the 28th March. We hope to have a new date very soon.

Preparation guidelines

Each school will be allocated 25 minutes in total to present. Each group of students should prepare a 5 minute presentation followed by a 20 minute workshop session. Teams can present on their chosen topic. They should try and present on some recent learning that has taken place in their class or at their school this term. The workshop sessions will provide every individual group a chance to experience an activity linked to the presentation. The presenting team will be responsible for leading these small group sessions. Please contact paul@nightzookeeper.com if you have any questions about preparation for the event.


Interested in participating? Unfortunately we only have enough space and time to accept the first seven schools to register. We suggest that each school should nominate 6 or 7 student representatives to attend the event. Please Sign up below:
