Aim: Experience a habitat in Wales which is of international importance and increase your awareness of the range of cross-curricular learning opportunities that are possible by visiting these types of habitat.

 

Learning Outcomes:

•          Develop wildlife identification skills including trees and their seeds

•          Understanding of the range of different types of tree seeds, how they are dispersed and the conditions                    they need to grow

•          Knowledge of the plants and fungi that reproduce by producing spores rather than seeds

•          Develop understanding of the importance of fungi to people

•          New ideas for educational activities and games
