Animal WISE for Primary

At the Scottish SPCA we believe our support to every school in Scotland should extend further than our FREE annual workshops. We want to support young people’s health and wellbeing, enhance their literacy and numeracy skills, introduce innovative ways to engage with STEM and inspire future career pathways.

Our robotics friends are taking a break for a bit however they will still make an appearance during some specialised workshops and events!

We are very excited to introduce our new FREE Primary programme which we will be offering from August 2022 , filled with exciting and innovative learning opportunities!


Explore the different ways to learn with the Scottish SPCA below!


Animal WISE e-learning course

By taking part in the Scottish SPCA's virtual Animal WISE world, you and your class will:

  • Work your way through all the different zones.
  • Show us what you have learnt by taking part in our quizzes.
  • Be crowned a Scottish SPCA Animal Champion!

If you achieve all this, you’ll also be telling the world you are indeed Animal WISE!


Adventure Tails activity packs

Our Adventure Tails booklets are filled with lots of activities that will teach you some amazing facts about the animals we have living here in Scotland.

Want to help Martha, one of our inspectors, and take on the challenge of becoming Scotland’s Animal Champion?

There are five colour stages to complete – Orange, Purple, Pink, Blue and Green. To be Scotland’s Animal Champion you must complete all coloured booklets in order. The orange booklet will be your first and the green booklet will be your last. You will be awarded a certificate each time you complete a booklet and hopefully you will be crowned as one of Scotland’s Animal Champions!

Psst message to teachers…if at least 50% of the pupils at your school take part, you’ll get the amazing honour of being one of the Scottish SPCA’s School Animal Champions 2020. We have made sure that there are lots of links to the Curriculum for Excellence so that you can be impressed with what your pupils have learned!

We will also be releasing some video blogs and setting up live-chat forums so keep checking our website!

So... let’s get started!

We can’t wait to see all of your creations! If you need any help along the way please contact us at and we will soon share details on how you can ask us questions live too.

If you need help reading any of these documents, you can ask your computer to read them aloud to you. Download Adobe Reader from the App Store or Google. Once installed, open the “View” menu, point to the “Read Out Loud” submenu, and then click the “Activate Read Out Loud” command. You can also hit Ctrl+Shift+Y to activate this feature.
