Learning about and caring for our native UK pollinators!
Making our school grounds pollinator friendly!
Create a mini-meadow
If you don’t have sufficient space to grow a Mini Meadow in your school grounds, then why not sow your seeds in several pots or window boxes?
To help you get started – Receive a bag of free meadow seeds from Friends of the Earth! Friends of the Earth (FoE) are giving schools that take part in their Soil Sample Survey a bag of free meadow seed! Click here to find out how your school can receive a bag of seeds selected to match your soil type.
Help scientists assess the state of our UK pollinators – Take part in the Polli Nation Survey!
How to take part? Schools can contribute to the project by recording this summer all pollinators that visit a small meadow area (10 metres by 10 metres) in their school grounds.
For information about how to join the project and take part click here.
Share your knowledge with others - Plan a Bee day in your school!
Let the day be an opportunity for your pupils to learn about pollinators, food chains, reproduction and the life cycles of green plants.
Your special day might include an assembly, games, a bee quiz, treasure hunt, planting shrubs, herbs and flowers and pupils hanging bee hotels.

Try something new! – Make your own short animation cartoon about The Red Mason Bee
Do you have the skills to edit video clips? Maybe you prefer making animated cartoons using a program like 2Animate. If the answer is “yes” then why not use make your own short video about The Red Mason Bee or the important work that Pollinators perform and showcase your work here on the SeeNature website for others to watch.
Still Looking for more ideas!
Then why not consider:
- Creating your own Bee art gallery
- Displaying your pupils poems about Bees in your Poet’s Corner
- Inviting a local Fruit or Vegetable Producer to talk to your pupils about the work pollinators perform on their farm or in the orchard
