Key Stage 2

Key Stage 2

Habitats: This session looks at four different habitats and how different animals are specially adapted to survive within these areas. Students will be given the chance to get hands-on with a range of artefacts which compliment student learning.

Classifications: Students will learn about the 5 different vertebrate animal categories along with being taught about invertebrates. Students will be able to point out key features which define what category different animals fit into. A range of artefacts will be used during the session, which students will be able to handle too!

Natural selection: Groups will learn about Charles Darwin, the theory of natural selection and survival of the fittest. Students will learn about variation in species and be shown examples of how variation helps the survival of different species but also be introduced to the idea that not all species have needed to evolve dramatically in order to survive. A range of artefacts will be used alongside the session, which students will be able to handle.

Forests and deforestation: This lesson offers the opportunity for students to learn about the elements and conditions found in forests, it also highlights threats to our forests and how we can help with conservation efforts. This session is designed with a range of artefacts accompanying it so students are able to get hands-on whilst learning.

Diets and dentition: Students will be taught about the different types of diets animals have, as well as learning about the teeth and the way in which certain types of teeth are more suited to each diet. This session offers the opportunity for students to look at a range of artefacts which complement the session.

Lifecycles: This session focuses on the different life cycles of mammals (including humans), birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians and insects. It looks at the different lifecycles stages each category goes through during their life. Students are able to get hands-on with a range of artefacts which complement the session.

Tailor made: Sessions can be made to compliment learning taking place within the school. Alternatively, the education staff can put together a fun and informative session using the resources available within the WILD Centre.
