This visit fits well with curriculum work: It is recommended that you do this visit as part of a large topic / scheme of work. To help you with this we have written Devon based teachers resource packs. What about waste? are two literacy packs written for year 3/4 pupils and year 5/6 pupils. They both have 10 lesson plans with supporting documents. There is also the Material World: a Science and Geography pack for year 5/6 themed around resource use and focuses on plastics and textiles. Check them out here.
