BBC Breathing Places Schools
Since its successful launch in January 2008, over 11,000 schools across the UK have registered to take part in BBC Breathing Places Schools. As the campaign comes to an end the City & County of Swansea want to continue the momentum and interest created by proving ongoing support to schools.
During the campaign each term, schools were supplied with themes, ideas and resources to help them 'Do One Thing' for nature with a focus on benefit to biodiversity and pupils learning outside the classroom.
The BBC campaign comes to an end in July 2010 and as the only Welsh BBC Breathing City since 2008 we, the City & County of Swansea's Natural Conservation Team want to continue the good work and provide a legacy for the campaign.
Whether your school is a BBC Breathing Places registered school or not we want to continue helping schools with an interest in creating and enhancing places for biodiversity as well as and learning about the natural environment school grounds, park or nature reserves.
The Nature Conservation Team can offer the following support to schools;
· Wildlife sessions in your school ground – discover who & what lives with you
· School grounds enhancement – find out how to improve your grounds for wildlife
· Out and about – learn about biodiversity at your school, park or local nature reserve
· Biodiversity classroom sessions – Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship
· Support for achieving environmental awards – e.g. Eco Schools, Swansea Sustainable Schools Scheme
· INSET and ADDs sessions on all of the above
Programmes can also developed to suit your schools needs so for more information please contact
