Theme Concept

Key Stage 2 children will investigate, explore and learn about the environment by studying their own close locality. This may be their playground or a designated area nearby. They will use their learning to create learning trails for younger children from their school meeting the aims of the NIEA to protect, conserve and promote the natural environment. The children’s learning will focus on minibeasts, birds, hedges and trees and composting as appropriate to the schools environment or locality. This theme promotes active learning.
