Key Stage 2 Ecosystems ESR Year 5 Year 6

This three-lesson ESR scheme of work helps your class identify different ways the ocean and other ecosystems provide services for us.

 
#TheCompleteSeries3lessons

Children are challenged to discuss the different benefits the environment gives us for free and how important these benefits are for sustaining, supporting and enriching our lives. They then investigate how humans may be taking these services for granted, the problems arising from how we are treating the ocean and what actions can be taken to prevent the consequences of these actions.

With lesson plans, slides for the teaching input, differentiated activities and a range of printable resources, this ‘What the Ocean Gives Us’ scheme will encourage discussion within your class and encourage the children to become more aware of the importance of respecting and protecting nature and the environment.
