About the Project

Hi there,

You have just discovered a ready-made, NO COST, creative arts and conservation project, perfect for your Year 5, Year 6 or Year 7 children.  Any age can take part and schools in the UK and abroad love this project.  It seems to be most successful with ages 9 – 12, but we have wonderful fantasy animal contributions from 5 year olds upwards.

Following on from the ‘Alice in Wonderland’-like Bowdleflode Stories (find them on About Us – Meet the Bowdleflodes), children are invited to create, on good A3 white paper, a fantasy animal made up of parts from all sorts of other animals, in particular, Endangered Species.

On a separate form, your children will describe their animal in detail.  Their work will follow key stages in the National Curriculum.

Their animal then appears in the Bowdleflode Wildlife Park each with their own webpage. We give your school its own web page on the Bowdleflode website with a link to your school social media and your own school website.

The next stage is encouraging children to find out about endangered species and ideally, sometime during the busy curriculum, an away day spent with wildlife anywhere can lead to a special interest, or even the adoption, of an endangered species. This can involve the school and/or the parents.

Hi there,

Following on from the ‘Alice in Wonderland’-like Bowdleflode Stories (find them on YouTube via Visit Us – Meet the Bowdleflodes), children are invited to create, on good A3 white paper, a fantasy animal made up of parts from all sorts of other animals, in particular, Endangered Species. On a separate form, your children will describe their animal in detail.

Their work will follow key stages in the National Curriculum.

All entry forms can be downloaded, but if you prefer, by all means email us (see Contact Us) with the number of children who will be entering an animal and we can post you all the necessary forms.

 

The completed drawings appear on the Bowdleflodes website.  Your school will have its own webpage, linked to your website and your own social media.

Each child also has their own free page on the website and can find their animal easily in the Bowdleflode Wildlife Park via ‘Find your Animal’.

Finally, please encourage the children to find out about Endangered Species, ideally, with their parents.
