Resources for Teachers

The Ecology Centre wants you and your class to get as much out of your visit to Holland Park as possible. We have produced two packs which give useful resources and ideas about pond dipping and minibeast hunting in Holland Park for KS1 and KS2 teachers. The content and activities can be adapted to suit the different needs of classes and age groups. They aim to give teachers a better understanding of both the pond and woodland habitats and provide suggestions for pre- and post-visit activities.
