My wonderful wild local area Each section contains background information and classroom activities, including work in the school grounds, games, puzzles, creative artwork and drama ideas, with differentiation for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Reviews

If you buy only one book related to schools and the environment, this is the one. Everything about it is exciting. Its great strength is its focus on the local environment: bees, butterflies, blackbirds, snails, slugs, and spiders. Children will love the titles of these sections, such as The birdy bits and The wriggly bits . The more serious stuff is covered as well, in the same buzzy style. We have troubled species, troubled climate, and troubled places. There are colouring-intemplates, word searches, and a strong Christian emphasis that the world is merely loaned to us to look after. A brilliant resource, and excellent value. Dennis Richards in Church Times 20 September 2013 From the Church Times 20 September 2013 From the same stable comes Wow!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
