RSPCA Compassionate Class - KS2 lessons about animal welfare, compassion and empathy

The RSPCA Compassionate Class lesson plans include a series of enquiry-led activities which encourage Key Stage 2 pupils to develop compassion and empathy through the lens of animal welfare. The free lesson plans help pupils to understand the needs of different types of animals, and work collaboratively to develop their skills and values.

The resources include a detailed teacher guidance document, an introductory film and the following 4 lesson plans:

Lesson 1: ‘Robot Dog’

This lesson explores the issues of pet ownership and owners’ responsibilities towards them.

Lesson 2: ‘Plan(et) B’

This lesson explores the habitats of wild animals and how we can help protect the natural world.

Lesson 3: ‘Animal Heroes’

This lesson explores the different jobs that working animals do and how this helps humans.

Lesson 4: ‘Farmyard Freedom

This lesson introduces issues around animal welfare in food production and identifies conditions that best meet the needs of animals.

The PSHE Association’s Subject Specialist Karen Summers says:

"These innovative new lessons from the RSPCA provide a variety of stimulating activities which explore the importance of animal welfare in a creative and imaginative way.  The exciting activities promote the skills of compassion and advocacy and use enquiry-based learning to enable pupils to consider how they can contribute towards making the world a better place for animals. This resource will make a valuable contribution to a planned PSHE education programme and will support the development of pupil’s empathy, decision-making and critical thinking skills.”
