Key Stage 3 and 4

Knowsley Hey students


The changing curriculum at Key Stages 3 and 4 presents many opportunities for the inclusion of Wildlife Recording in a variety of subjects and promotes the use of 'outdoor learning'.

Recording wildlife habitats and species within the school grounds and local areas, provides interesting 'real-life' experience.  It also creates the opportunity to collect 'real' data which can then be used to carry out longer-term recording. There are excellent links to many curriculum subject areas, creating opportunities for a more thematic approach.
