Generation Wild - FREE nature connection programme for schools
Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) - FREE nature connection programme for schools
WWT have had a fantastic response to their Generation Wild programme. With the programme entering its third year, over 28,000 children have already taken part and they’ve completed over 70,000 nature connection activities at home and at school. Your pupils could join them.
Generation Wild is a nature connection programme for schools in economically disadvantaged areas. Children follow the magical story of Ava the bird girl, a character who is brought to life during a visit to the wetland centre. She encourages them to complete nature activities back at school and at home to receive their certificates and membership badges as they become ‘Guardians of the Wild’.
The project includes FREE school visits (including FREE transport) as well as FREE return visits enabling children to share the magic with their families. Curriculum resource packs have also been produced so you can tie the project in with your class topics.
We recommend planning ahead and booking for a time of year when you are delivering a relevant topic. This might include work on nature, the environment, animals, habitats, food chains, journeys / migration or work focusing on Africa (Ava migrates to Africa).
We are now taking bookings for participation right through to the end of July 2024. The qualifying criteria are based on the percentage of pupils receiving free school meals and vary by region. To find out more and see if your school qualifies visit www.generationwild.org.uk
An interactive and engaging way to inspire children to genuinely bond with nature. We loved it - our children loved it - it was fabulous! (Participating teacher)
