As we celebrate 50 years of wildlife conservation our education team have launched an exciting new project for all Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils across East Anglia – or even further afield!
The ‘50 Ways to Save the World’ project aims to inspire school children to take action to help protect our planet, whilst helping teachers fit conservation and nature learning goals around the National Curriculum.
Taking part in the project– which is completely free for schools – couldn’t be easier. After signing up on our website, teachers will receive a copy of our ‘50 Ways to Save the World’ education pack, which is full of cross-curricular work ideas and work sheets covering subjects such as science, maths, English, art and geography.
Schools can gain certificates for completing 10, 20 or even 30 of the work ideas! There is also a chance for pupils to enter our creative writing competition and WIN a trip to the zoo for their class!*
*(One prize will be offered per age group of free admission for the winner’s class (up to 36 children and 6 adults) for a visit to Africa Alive! or Banham Zoo – to be booked before end 2019. Booking includes a free Discovery Session for your class (subject to availability).
To accompany the classroom work ideas, the zoos will also be launching a new Discovery Session entitled ‘How to Save the World!’, which focuses on our animal superhero characters – the Water Warrior, the Recycler and the SSSSSSuper Snake. The sessions involve the chance for students to get hands-on with some amazing animals and animal biofacts, and discovering small ways in which we can all play our part in wildlife conservation.
