Home schooling with nature

Bringing nature to every home

Let us help you plan your day

Nature is everywhere; you don't have to be somewhere to make the most of it.

We have been putting home schooling and wellness ideas on our social media platforms, but now you can access them all in one place, with some exclusive extras as a thank you for signing up to our page. We wll also be sending emails directly to you with more ideas and lesson plans all around the subjects of nature and wildlife.

Whether you want a crafty video, a worksheet, or some wellness ideas, we've got it all for you to enjoy and let nature nurture you through this.

Things to do and make

There are still lots of ways that you can help wildlife during this time. We've got some brilliant activity sheets to download. If you do try any of these, please share with us on social media using #everydaywildlife. We'd love to see!

All of these activities are perfect for families to do together.

Wellness and Wellbeing

It's not always easy to be okay all of the time. And that is okay! Our My Place team are here to help you through the Five Ways To Wellbeing and give you helpful guides on how to look after your own mental health.

Poetry Corner

One of our lovely Brockholes volunteers has written a collection of poetry for you to enjoy and bring some wildlife into your home.

Poet Lorna Smithers says: "This collection honours the birds and other creatures of the wetlands and coasts of Lancashire and beyond and touches on the themes of the climate crisis, science, and war. Most of the poems were written in response to encounters with wetland birds on my stretch of the river Ribble and visiting reserves such as LWT’s Brockholes, WWT Martin Mere, and RSPB Leighton Moss."
