Primary School Lesson Plans

List of Resources for Primary Schools

Schools and teachers are clearly at liberty to dip into the materials, ideas and lesson plans as much as they wish to. However for total immersion for your pupils there should be enough material for a class to do osprey related work (across all subjects) for at least two hours every day for a week.

Use the links below to download a .zip file or PDF of the lesson plans. The plans are in Word format or PDF format, with supporting images and even video in some cases.

    Please can I have access to the primary lesson plans. We are studying the book SKYHAWK by Gill Lewis in September. We are interested in information about migration to West Africa.

    Many Thanks
