Engage your class in some cross-curricular learning with activities themed around animals and their welfare

Boy and guinea pig

National Pet Month runs from 3 April to 3 May. The aim of the Month is to champion responsible pet ownership and educate people about our feathered, furry and sometimes scaly best friends. The theme of animals is a great topic that children will not only love, but will also engage them in various subjects across the curriculum. We provide dip-in activity ideas that link in with literacy, art, drama, PSHE, ICT and poetry.

Don’t forget to check out the Child Ed PLUS resource bank for lots more pet- and animal-themed activities that makes links to subjects such as science. In particular, our Key Stage 2 ‘Grammar’ and ‘Punctuation Safari Park’ series use a safari-park scenario to build children’s confidence in these areas.
