FOUNDATION AND PRE-SCHOOL...

Under the sea

Using laminated pictures of animals that live ‘under the sea’. Explore local rock pool animals, talking of their colour, texture and shape with easy to understand explanations. Hands on opportunities available for all animals: Mussels, sea anemones and empty ray eggs. Question and answer time about anything ‘under the sea’.


KEY STAGE 1...

Care for the environment - pollution

We explore the local rock pool environment and talk about how the animals within eat, move, grow and reproduce. Mussel, anemone and empty ray egg touch opportunities with starfish viewing. Discussions about litter and how we need to care for our local rock pools, whilst playing the ‘Litter Police’ game.

Minibeasts - animals with no backbone

We explore ‘Minibeasts’, animals without backbones, found in the local rock pool environment and talk about how the eat, move, grow and reproduce. Mussel and anemone touch opportunities with starfish viewing. We summarise by playing our ‘Fins Up’ game where the children differentiate minibeasts from animals with a back bone.


KEY STAGE 2...

Food chains

We explore the term ‘producer’, also herbivores and carnivores as consumers and what a top predator is. We explore 2 food chains found within a local rock pool environment and talk about how each animal’s life processes enable it to hunt/eat or stay safe from predators. Mussel and anemone touch opportunity with starfish viewing. We summarise by playing the ‘Chomp’ Chain’ game in which each group forms their food chain from producer to top predator.

Habitats and adaptation

We explore how animals within the local rock pool environment are adapted to their habitat whilst discussing their life processes. Mussel, Anemone and empty ray egg touch opportunity with starfish viewing. We summarise by playing our ‘Imagination’ game, in which an imaginary creature is created by the class for our imaginary habitat, this is to summarise the importance of adapting to a given habitat to thrive.
