Week Twelve

Posted on

For the twelfth instalment of our home learning resources, we are looking at food chains as our weekly topic and the Osprey is the Wildlife Fact file. We have produced food chain resources for a range of education levels from KS2 up to A-level so hopefully there is something for everyone!

We have introduced these online learning opportunities in response to Covid-19, which has prevented us from going into schools in the Ribble Catchment as we normally would. This is our way of bringing our educational topics to you at home so you can continue to learn all about rivers and wildlife. Each week we will be providing a new main topic, a Wildlife Fact file and a quiz.

Food chains
This Prezi is aimed at KS2 students and covers what a food chain is, what key words are used to describe food chains, how to write food chains and what factors might disrupt these food chains.
