Thanks to support from the Ernest Kleinwort Charitable Trust, we have produced this set of classroom reference guides to the regions of Sussex, for use in Sussex schools.  This classroom guide to the wildlife, habitats of the Weald and how humans have impacted upon it is a zipped folder containing a set of teaching notes and an accompanying PowerPoint presentation, filled with inspiring and informative images.  Also included are some suggestions for activities linked to the Science National Curriculum.  Topics covered are:

  1. Introduction to Sussex - location, history, size, sub-regions

  2. Geography of the Weald - history, landscape and habitats

  3. Plants of the Weald

  4. Animals of the Weald

  5. Human impact: protecting the Weald

  6. Human impact: fracking in the Weald

  7. Suggested activities linked to the Science National Curriculum
