Welcome to our Hands On teachers area, packed full of ideas and resources to enrich the curriculum through teaching responsible pet ownership to all ages.
We are passionate about animal welfare. All our Hands On resources bring the curriculum to life through the medium of animals, but also give children an understanding of animal needs and issues we see everyday.
Help us make a difference
With over half of all households in the UK owning a pet, animals are everywhere in the school community so through learning about responsible pet ownership, children can make a difference to both pets in their homes now and also their pets of the future.
Why not take a look at our real life Animal Accounting numeracy pack, watch our short film all about looking after the animals at Wood Green or book a British Values Tour of our Cambridgeshire Centre, helping your students discover how they can make a difference to the lives of pets living in their homes and neighbourhoods.
