Big Schools' Birdwatch is a simple activity that gets you and your class closer to the birds visiting your school grounds. 

Taking just one hour, the Birdwatch can be carried out in school, or by visiting a local outdoor space any time between 20 January - 14 February 2014. And every school or group that submits their results before the end of the activity 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, or 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 helping give nature a home at your school.

We also have specially designed resources for younger children. Little Schools' Birdwatch is for under fives to take part in, while older students (11 - 14 year olds) can get involved in Really Big Schools' Birdwatch. The Birdwatch can also be adapted for youth groups, eg Brownies and Cubs.
