This resource pack for KS3 (age 11-14) pupils is about climate change and the effects it will have on people around the world. It emphasises the increasing unpredictability of the weather and explores ways people might prepare for the, apparently inevitable, ‘wild weather’ - floods and droughts. It also introduces the notion of food security.
A wide range of practical maths perfect for a visit to your local forest and covering a wide range of curriculum objectives. Activities include tallying, estimating, shapes and patterns as well as a range of activities for back in the classroom.
The Lost Words stands against the disappearance of wild childhood. It is a joyful celebration of nature words and the natural world they invoke. With acrostic spell-poems by award-winning writer Robert Macfarlane and hand-painted illustrations by Jackie Morris, this enchanting book captures the irreplaceable magic of language and nature for all ages.
Taking part in a beach clean is an excellent way of learning about our environment and raising awareness of marine conservation. It’s also a good opportunity to take learning outside of the classroom and into your local environment.
Marine litter is a problem that we can all play a part in solving, and what better way to start than with a day at the beach!
Litter left on beaches, washed into rivers or thrown overboard from boats not only makes the marine environment look unpleasant, it kills thousands of marine animals every year, usually by ingestion, entanglement or smothering.
