Big Schools' Birdwatch is a simple educational activity that gets you and your class closer to the birds visiting your school grounds.
The Birdwatch takes just one hour, and can be carried out at any point between 5 January and 13 February 2015 – that’s the entire first half of the spring term. Every school or group that submits their results before the 20 February will be sent a certificate and free personalised minibeast poster as a thank you for taking part.
The Big Schools' Birdwatch works across a wide age and ability range. There's plenty of flexibility to run it as simply as you like: as the centrepiece of cross-curricular studies, project work, or as part of work to improve your school grounds. By taking part you'll also be providing us with data on how well some of our most familiar birds are faring, as well as helping to give nature a home at your school.
We have specially designed resources for the under fives, the 5 – 11s, and for 11 and older, all of which can be found on our resources page. The Birdwatch can also be adapted for youth groups such as Brownies and Cubs.
Make submitting your results quicker and easier by telling us a few things about your class now. Plus, when you register you'll get a free colour resource to use with your class.
