Through developing a body of key knowledge and concepts, pupils will develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about living things.

Learners will be introduced to the idea that all living things have certain characteristics that are essential for keeping them healthy. By studying your local area children will become familiar with the terms ‘habitat’ and ‘microhabitat’ and that animals that live there depend on each other. Pupils work scientifically by sorting and classifying things according to whether they are living, dead or were never alive.

Older pupils use classification systems and keys to identify animals and plants and will learn to describe how living things are classified into groups according to observable characteristics.

Activities include:

  • Exploring and comparing differences between things that are living, dead or never been alive
  • Identifying that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited
  • Identifying and naming a variety of plants and animals
  • Using classification keys to help group and identify a variety of living things

Studies:

Pupils are introduced to the idea that all living things have certain characteristics and that living things live in habitats to which they are suited.

What People Say

During a den building activity it was great to see how quieter children showed their capacity for leadership and imagination.  The activities Sam delivered were engaging, challenging and required teamwork plus led to some good writing afterwards.

Nicola Welsh, Middlestone Moor Primary

Over the three sessions, all the children learnt new skills and enjoyed their time outdoors! It gave me increased knowledge and the confidence to plan and to deliver similar activities myself. The original aim, to link to PE and specifically an outdoor and adventurous activity core task, was met – especially on teamworking and cooperation. All the sessions were well planned and organised and they were delivered and managed well. Every activity challenged the children and taught them new skills. It was good to see less confident children have the opportunity to shine too!

Denise Hannon, St Chad’s RCVA Primary

The children thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor activities.  All the children were eager and excited to find out more.  A fantastic day – managed and delivered very well.  A really interesting way to focus on our topic of the Great Fire of London.

Cara Morton, Dubmire Primary School

This was the most enjoyable training course I’ve been on in some time! The course leaders were really helpful and knowledgeable. I feel inspired to motivate the children and to start some growing activities! Thank you so much.

Louise Gardner, St Mary’s RCVA Primary

A very useful CPD that delivered ideas for creative outdoor activities and experiments for science as well as cross curricular links. Thank you for a great day!
