Environmental Educational is a highly relevant subject area which forms another core element to my work. Linking elements of the curriculum to Forest Schools without compromising its ethos is important to many schools. I have a strong background in Science and teach a whole range of activities within this field. These include understanding and then practically applying biological principles such as Hibernation, Mimicry, Succession, Adaptation, Interdependence and food chains for example. Further, children are taught how to identify a range of flora and fauna such as trees and woodland insects and learn about the behaviour and interrelationship of many organisms they encounter. I have a particular interest in developing wildlife areas at schools along with pond creations which gives the children a really valuable experience of practicable involvement in wildlife management and development. With the crisis that we are now encountering with climate breakdown I have extended my programme to teach and heighten awareness of these issues. This has included plastic use and recycling, personal energy use and how to reduce your carbon footprint.
