The Zagaro

EYFS, KS 1; Early Years, First Stage KS 1.

Ages 3 - 7

DURATION: 45 mins - 55 mins

OVERVIEW:  A Zagaro? I don’t think I know, A Zagaro! Well here we go… 

The Zagaro - based on a famous children’s story -  takes us on a trip through the deep, dark woods. Our rat protagonist meets a host of ZooLab’s weird and wonderful animals along the way and uses their characteristics to create an imaginary monster to scare away other creatures.


Spoiler ahead - at the end of the story we find out the Zagaro is real, much torats surprise! Our story-based workshops are sure to engage and entertain through our Rangers acting out the story and by getting the children on their feet and moving about! We bring this classic tale to life, adding an extra dimension and sense of excitement through our live animal interaction.
