More and more people are waking up to the huge damage that humans are doing to our planet. There are however some reasons to be cheerful: Rewilding, Reforestation; Changing Diets and Conservation (amongst others!)
This 4 week topic takes a positive look at various improvements people are making in the UK and around the world. Together we’ll explore the reintroduction of boar, bison and beavers; examine the benefits of forests; look at innovations in food technology and find out what international conservationists are doing.
This topic is a great way for your child to access quality learning at a very competitive price. These classes permit interactivity via the chat function, polls and quizzes but in order to maximise security and assist with concentration student cameras and microphones will not be enabled.
Lessons can be taken as a whole topic (recommended) or individually, if preferred, as they are written to make sense on a lesson by lesson basis.
These lessons are not based on the KS3 Science National Curriculum – they are designed to broaden and deepen scientific knowledge above and beyond that usually taught in school.
It is recommended that lessons are taken as a whole topic to give the students and the tutor a chance to get into the subject properly. However lessons can be taken individually if preferred – all students will be made to feel welcome and helped to join in whenever they attend.
These lessons are typically suited to students aged approximately 10-14 years of age.
Lesson 1 (Wednesday 4 August): Rewilding – Learn what rewilding is, how it can help restore habitats and how to evaluate projects in the UK
Lesson 2 (Wednesday 11 August): Reforestation – Learn how forests benefit humans, what to consider when reforesting an area and how you might get involved in a local reforestation scheme.
Lessons 3 (Wednesday 18 August): Changing Diets – Learn how the food you eat impacts on the planet and what scientists are doing to develop better foods
Lesson 4 (Wednesday 25 August): Conservation – Learn about some major international conservation projects and some of the difficulties they face. Maybe you can help?
