Cats Protection launches new-look Resources for Schools

Cats Protection has given its range of free School Resources a makeover for the new School Year!

The ‘Cats in the Classroom’ Primary and Secondary School Resources have been completely revamped to more effectively support teaching of English, Maths, PSHE, Science and Citizenship (and equivalent activities in the 5-14 Scottish Curriculum) whilst educating pupils about responsible cat ownership.

Both Resources:

• Are now available as an easy-to-use and easy-to-search CD-ROM

• Include even more fun and educational activities, linked to the curriculum through teachers notes and pupil sheets

• Contain updated information and statistics about Cats Protection and the charity’s work

• Are much more colourful and pictorial to make learning more fun!

Additional changes have been made to each Resource. The Primary Pack, suitable for Key Stages 1 and 2 (5-7 year olds), contains a new section developed especially for the Foundation Stage.

Children learn about the basics of cat care, looking after money, the role of voluntary organisations and charities and much more! It is accompanied by a colourful A1 poster, providing fun and interesting facts about cats and a white space on which pupils can place their own work.

The Secondary Pack is now suitable for Key Stages 3 and 4 (11-16 year olds). As well as enabling pupils to explore interesting subjects including genetics and cats in history, it comprises a practice SAT reading paper, offering useful practice for pupils with no extra preparation necessary from teachers.

Again, it includes an A1 poster featuring up-to-date Cats Protection literature, which can be used with some of the activities and provides a focus for pupils’ work.

Cats Protection is currently mailing all Primary and Secondary Schools in the UK to tell them about the updated Resources and enclosing an order form. They can also be obtained by emailing education@cats.org.uk, calling 01825 741353, or visiting www.cats.org.uk/learn where they can be downloaded.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity, rehoming around 60,000 cats and kittens a year through its nationwide network of 29 Adoption Centres and 261 volunteer-run Branches.
