We all benefit from the life giving properties of the Sun. Placed at the centre of our solar system, its light ensures that plants are nourished, providing food for the rest of the living world. Food chains offer us a representation of this power.
By studying food chains a number of complex natural processes come alive, helping children understand the need to care for our planet with its unique ecosystems and balance of life. This understanding enhances our aspirations to ensure that our planet remains sustainable for this and future generations.
