Around the World: Europe with Barnabas Bat

New to summer 2023, Around the World at Markshall. Join Percy and the team as we discover geographic zones, complete activities in your adventurers booklet, let our imaginations run wild with crafts and learn about the amazing world around us.

Embark on a quest to discover habitats, adaptations, evolution, sustainable populations and life cycles.

On your first visit, you will receive your Percy’s Adventures booklet with fun activities and spaces to collect stickers of your new animal friends. How many can you collect?

Here’s what you can expect in week one.

Join Barnabas, the brown long-eared bat, and discover his habitat, scientific classification, and food chain.

  • Investigate facts about classification and ecosystems.
  • Meet our storyteller in the Wild Wood to find out more about bats and their food chain.
  • Get hands on making seedbombs and a bug hotel to take home.
  • Head to Chestnut Chase to discover woodland sounds.
  • Create a nature picture based on Andy Goldsworthy.

And pick up your Barnabas Bat sticker.
