In this episode we highlight three resources for teaching primary pupils about the great outdoors.
John Rhymer, Worcestershire Children's Services adviser for sustainability and head of Bishops Wood Centre recommends:
- Tenax Light and Moisture Meter - a useful tool to help with the care of over 150 plants
- Earth Magic - a folder of activities designed to enrich nature walks
- TTS stethoscope - enable your pupils to listen to the insects and sap inside trees
John joins presenter Hermione Cockburn in the studio along with panellists Pat Henchie, headteacher at Lowther Primary School, and education consultant Adrienne Jones.
