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.
Their newest interactive resource Animal Action: Pet respect,video and audio-led activities and is free to use for anyone with access to the internet. A literacy-based resource, it challenges Key Stage 2 pupils to work as editors on RSPCA's animal action magazine to produce exciting online magazines about the different issues surrounding pet ownership.
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.
