Our specially trained educators use a wide range of teaching and learning styles - whole class discussion, paired work, reflection, hands-on activities, music, drama, games and puppetry - to ensure that every child is able to learn in a way that suits them; and specific, positive teaching techniques to increase children's interest, raise their self-esteem and boost their learning further.

A different, age-appropriate workshop is available for each primary year group from Nursery to Year 6. Read a synopsis of each workshop and its learning outcomes here.

The Life Education workshops can be delivered in the Life Bus or LifeSpace - see below for more information.

Life Bus

We bring our mobile classroom, the Life Bus, to your school. It is a totally unique environment, inspiring learning through awe and wonder.

Inside you will find a fibre optic starry ceiling; a life size model of the human body; moving human body modules showing the circulatory, respiratory, digestive and nervous systems in action; a brain that lights up as it talks to children; a wide screen TV; and Harold, the giraffe puppet.



LifeSpace is an inflatable learning environment which is erected in a suitable space within your school.

Inside you will find wonderful lighting effects; use of technology to look inside the body and find out how it works; a large screen; and Harold, the giraffe puppet.

LifeBase workshops are available for pupils in Years 5 & 6 (Key Stage 2) and in Years 7 & 8 (Key Stage 3) and take place in their own classrooms. The workshops use audio visual stimuli, quizzes using interactive voting technology, discussion and drama to explore risky situations, normative behaviour and attitudes towards smoking, alcohol and other drugs.
