“This is an unbelievable resource for primary schools. I used the Red Squirrel Education Pack twice weekly for a whole term. The kids became so knowledgeable about the red squirrels and other British native animals. Many of them had withdrawal symptoms when we finished the pack. I can’t wait to use it again next year.” Miss L, Year 5 teacher, Aylesbury
Most schoolchildren in the UK will not have seen a red squirrel. Fewer still will have seen one in the wild. The Red Squirrel Education Pack has been created to raise awareness of the plight of the native British squirrel and of the conservation efforts to help them regenerate.
Inspire your classes
Suitable for KS2 classes, the Red Squirrel Education Pack is a cross-curricular resource designed to last a teacher a half-term with exciting and stimulating activities in Science, Mathematics, Geography, History, Home Economics, English, Music, Art, Public Speaking and Drama. Students will enjoy the varied exercises which will gradually add to their understanding of the issues involved and ultimately enable them to answer the question “Do red squirrels need our help?”
Easy for teachers to use
The work is made easy for the teachers as the stunning photocopiable slides are supplemented by a CD of audio material and detailed Teachers’ Notes which provide both a comprehensive method and the answers to the activities as well as suggesting engaging extension tasks. Students are required to work individually, in pairs and in small groups. The Red Squirrel Education Pack aims to develop the students’ confidence in speaking, in listening, in reading, in discussing and in forming and expressing opinions.
EACH ACTIVITY IS MAPPED TO OUTCOME POINTS ON BOTH THE ENGLAND AND WALES NATIONAL CURRICULUM AND THE SCOTTISH CURRICULUM FOR EXCELLENCE
