The educational wormery is an interactive product designed for use in primary schools. It has been specifically designed to work alongside Key Stage 1 and 2 Science. The product brings interactive fun and activities to the syllabus allowing the teacher many options on how they want to address the syllabus.

Fruit waste is deposited into the wormery, where 100 tiger worms are kept. The worms are specially bred for breaking down food waste. As the wormery has been designed to be clear, the children can watch the whole process, and see which fruits degrade at different rates. The tiger worms create nutrients in the soil which are ideal for plant growth.

Plants can be grown in the lid of the wormery and maintained by the children. The wormery also produces “worm tea” which is filtered and tapped out of the bottom, which also contains lots of nutrients perfect for aiding plant growth.

One of the key features of this product is the lesson plans and activities that come with the product. Each booklet is specially designed for Key Stage 1 and 2. The lesson plans have been designed with primary school teachers and tested in schools to ensure they are suitable and interactive for the children. They cover all sorts of activities from measuring the worms, to growing different plants in the lid.

This product is all about interactive learning and helping the teachers to for fill their syllabus in the best possible way.
