In Environmental Learning for Classroom and Assembly at KS1 & KS2, the highly successful and popular author Mal Leicester teams up with the conservationist Denise Taylor to teach children about wildlife and environmental conservation through the art of storytelling. Reflecting the child’s world, the book works outwards from home to garden to neighbourhood to the countryside and seaside and to the planet as a whole. At each level, appreciating, conserving, and enhancing our environment is considered.

The authors follow the tried and tested format of Stories for Classroom and Assembly and Stories for Circle Time and Assemblies. Each of the ten chapters includes an original themed story and is packed with lesson plans and cross-curriculum learning activities designed to save teachers’ valuable time. Leicester and Taylor combine the wonder of storytelling with topical environmental issues, covering plants, creatures and the planet. The book covers the full range of conservation, protection and enhancement themes, concepts and values whilst developing the following skills:

  • literacy (including oracy)
  • numeracy
  • knowledge of the natural world
  • imaginative development
  • creative expression.

Making a highly topical and on-going subject accessible to children, this beautifully illustrated resource offers teachers assembly ideas, lesson plans and art activities all in one book.
