Learning and Teaching Resources

RSPCA Education exists to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to animals by supporting you to develop informed, responsible and active citizens.

Their aim is to show how animal welfare can be used within the context of the National Curriculum. To achieve this, they offer free resources for teachers and teachers in training.

Written by teachers for teachers, their lesson plans and ideas range from Early Years/Foundation Phase to Key Stage 4, and they are accompanied by engaging images, worksheets, factsheets and more.

Young people can be inspired by their interactive resources, which include:

Animals and us – educates KS1 and KS2 pupils about animals needs and shows them how they can make a difference in society

Science, ethics and animals – encourages GCSE Science students to think about the way we interact with, value and use animals in our daily lives.

They also have a team of education, training and development advisers who share their knowledge and experience of animal welfare issues through
providing free ITT and INSET sessions.

Broad Ranging

A very broad ranging resource, you will be sure to find something worthwhile here. The site is simple and easy to use, and is very straightforward in its explanations of the sources. It gives a large number of lesson plans, which helps if you are planning a topic for a whole term or half term, and the range of different activities will keep children interested for the duration of the topic. There is some crossover with areas of learning and lesson plans, but everything is there once you know how to find it. Would be a good idea for an ‘RSPCA day,’ though, incorporating different subjects in the theme.
