Ashford Green Corridor Education Pack

 

 Introduction

This education pack is designed to enable primary schools in Ashford to make use of the Ashford Green Corridor as an educational resource. It has been designed to tie in with the National Curriculum at Key Stage Two.

The core of this pack is a series of activities for pupils, each made up of between three and five activity sheets. The activities are:

It Makes Sense - sensory activities with links to art, English and music.

Habitat Explorers - looking at different habitats in the Corridor and what plants and animals need from a habitat.

Marvellous Minibeasts - adaptation - sampling minibeasts in up to three different habitats and making comparisons.

Who's Eating Who? - feeding relationships, food chains, food webs.

Down by the River - geographical study of a stretch of river and of the greenspace as a whole.

You can download these activity sheets below. You can also download Teachers' Notes; for more detail on how to prepare for and conduct these activities, see the 'Activity Notes'.

Activities are not site specific, so can be used at a range of sites within the Green Corridor. A series of site guides is provided to help teachers to find a site close to their school and plan how to carry out activities there.

The Activity Notes suggest preparatory and follow-up work and guide teachers through each activity.

Health and Safety Information is contained in a separate document - PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY.

In addition to the main activity pack you can download a Youth Groups Pack, which gives a range of ideas for ways that youth groups can make use of the Green Corridor.
