Planning the Bioblitz, Schools' Outreach Project, Glasgow

Free school outreach visits

We’re working in partnership with Aldi to connect young people with the natural world.

Our trained educators would love to come to your primary school or early years setting, and work with you and your pupils in your school grounds. 

Schools outreach work - with support from Aldi

As part of an exciting programme available in many cities across mainland Britain, this video provides a glimpse of what your school can expect from one of our outreach visits.

What's on offer?

We have a selection of fantastically engaging sessions on offer in selected cities and the surrounding area. 

Sessions for primary years are:

  • Wild Words 

Exploring your school grounds through the eyes of an animal, collecting natural things and generating ‘wild words’ that can be used as a stimulus for literacy work

  • Giving Nature A Home

Designed to help your pupils map and score your school grounds for nature - identifying habitats that already exist and spotting opportunities for creating more.

  • Bioblitz

We’ll help your pupils hunt for plants and minibeasts under every rock, bush and doormat.

The engaging outdoor sessions for early years are:

  • Wild Words

Travel around your outdoor space thinking about the journey of an animal. Collect natural discoveries and use ‘wild words’ that can be used as prompts for retelling the experience.

  • Habitat Explorer

What marvellous minibeasts do you know about and where would you look for them? Find minibeasts in your grounds by identifying habitats that already exist and spotting opportunities for creating more.

  • Sensing The World 

Explore your outdoor area using your senses. Make your own nature’s colours collection, discover and describe textures as we create a piece of wild art.
