RSPB’s Wild Challenge
RSPB’s Wild Challenges are designed to encourage young people to experience and help nature through a series of activities ranging from creating habitat heaps to going on a minibeast safari, each activity is easily adaptable and comes with resources to support. You can complete the activities as a class, year group or whole school and it is completely free to register. Schools can then work towards a Bronze, Silver or Gold award. Upon completion, each pupil, class or year group will receive certificates and stickers and the activities can be completed with a new class or year group each year, saving on planning.
You can register for RSPB’s Wild Challenge here.
Each year the RSPB also conducts The Big School’s Birdwatch, turning young people into conservation scientists helping to track the ups and downs of birds in every corner of the UK.

The BLUE Campaign was founded by wildlife film maker Fergus Beeley in 2014 to address the decline in biodiversity across the UK. The campaign is as simple as setting aside a small part of your school grounds to grow throughout the summer and studying the plants and insects in this area.
