LC22-149A Bitsize Biodiversity:Nature made easy! Learn about one new living thing each week. Join a collective group of teachers for 15mins every Monday, who are bringing nature into their classrooms.

Let’s reconnect with nature by learning more about the wildlife around us and then bring it back to our classrooms. Many students and adults find it difficult to identify common wildflowers, trees, birds and mammals. We want to address this. At the end of the year we want you and your students to be able to identify at least 30 living things and know a little more about them. When you learn a new word, you start to see it everywhere. We're hoping that by learning the names of these living things the students will see them and have a little more appreciation for them.


We're meeting on Mondays every week at 4pm for 15mins. We'll provide you with a set of resources on one living thing. Perhaps a plant, a mammal, an insect, or a bird.

You'll be invited to teach your class (es) about that living thing once a week. At the end of each term we will hold a fun quiz.

LC22-115A Movement Breaks, Brain Breaks & Drama Games

This webinar will outline why movement breaks and brain breaks need to be an integral part of the school day. Research tells us that the average learner, regardless of age needs to briefly move their bodies every 20-30 minutes, and many learn the most effectively with movement breaks every 15 minutes. This enables learners to maintain focus, integrate learning across both of the brain’s hemispheres, enter information into memory, and avoid feeling overwhelmed or information overload. These short breaks can provide efficiency in learning, stress relief, mood enhancement, boost relationships and class cohesion. This webinar is packed with ideas for movement breaks, brain breaks and fun drama games to add to your day.
