Secondary School Education

Ages 11 to 16 (Key stage 3 & 4)

Teachers of Science and particularly Biology will be aware that there are very few direct references to fungi in Curriculum Specifications in England. We are working hard to change this; however, in the meantime it is important to note that fungi can be used to illustrate life processes, ecology, classification, biology & disease etc. and can be used to assist the development of practical skills.

KS4 Resources:

Many of our teaching resources can be found on the BMS Fungi4Schools webpages.

Why not invite an expert to give a talk in your school or invite your class to take part in our UK Fungus Day secondary school competitions . Find out more here.
