Online Learning

We know that online learning is more important now than ever before., so that’s why we want to bring the learning experience of our sanctuary to you.

Online Lessons

Our online lesson is the perfect way to compliment your usual science lessons. We will explore a variety of current research topics backed by The National Curriculum such as artificial selection in agriculture, zoonotic disease transmission and prevention, and much more. 

Your students will answer A Big Question and have the opportunity for a live Q+A with an animal expert as well as learning about the vital work of our charity. 

For more information about our new online lessons, please email Kath@goodheart.org.uk.

NEW! Lunchtime Learning

In these FREE 30-minute bitesize sessions, our Education & Outreach Manager Kath covers important topics affecting animal and human populations, as well as the environment.

SESSION 1:

The Cheaper Food Paradigm

Covering some of the farming practices responsible for biodiversity loss and what we can do to secure a better future, just for the planet, but for human and animal populations too.

SESSION 2:

Artificial Selection/Selective Breeding

Kath talks through Artificial Selection (also known as Selective Breeding), and its potential implications for animal and human populations, as well as the environment.

SESSION 3:

Animal Dentition

This session covers animal dentition – the arrangement or condition of the teeth in specific individuals and species. You’ll meet some of our residents and learn more about how their teeth are suited to their particular diet and habitat.

Learning Modules

We’ve put together 5 modules to help you learn about the science of farmed animals and how they interact with humans and our planet.

These modules can be used to support our online lesson or can be even be used on their own prior to a visit to the sanctuary. Even better, every module compliments a part of the National Curriculum.
