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.

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 moreĀ here.
