A bank of resources created during the first Covid-19 Lockdown in 2020.

WB Monday 11th May
Our Theme is - Wildlife
Here are some activity ideas (where worksheets are available, these can be found by clicking on the 'Worksheets' button below - please let your child's teacher know if you can't access them):

















Have a go at as many of these activities as you can! We've tried to break them up and indicate what you could do each day but you can pick and choose which activity you want to do and on which day.


  • Why don't you take a walk on the wild side and explore the wildlife around Cutwood Park, along the Shrubbery Path or the reservoir on your daily walk (Mrs Troughton has created a fab guide to help)

  • This is also good with resources divided into indoor and outdoor activities 

  • Create your own bug display in your windows for our children to try and find during their daily exercise. You could send in your location through our website and we'll add you to our Rishton map so people know where to go to locate some bugs.

  • Red Ted Art will help you create your very own Bug Hotel -


  • Why don’t you collect a pebble on your wildlife walk, take it home and create a ‘pebble hug’? Simply paint a rainbow, write the words ‘pebble hug’ and leave it on the door step of a friend or elderly neighbour on your next walk.

  • Go on a bug hunt in school or at home and research the bugs you find. Create a interesting report or project full of pictures and information for a chance to win.

  • Watch a wildlife webcam - Check out the secret lives of birds and animals.  What do they do when no one's watching? 

  • You’ll find bats, badgers, barn owls and more here:

  • Birds of prey to well-known garden visitors a plenty here:

  • For more exotic species visit here -


  • Complete the KS Wildlife Comprehensions with good fact sheets saved in Files.

  • Can you make a daisy chain as tall as you? Send us a picture of your creations.

  • Bolton Abbey have produced a resource called Connecting to Nature which they have adapted for work at home:

  • Make a nature collection - Children love to collect things so you can help them learn about the natural world by collecting feathers, pinecones, leaves, shells and twigs. Fun for all ages.

  • Listen to a dawn chorus - Get kids bouncing out of bed before sunrise? Take them outside to listen to natures finest symphony.  Tickets are free and at this time of year you have a front row seat! Males will be out competing for territory and females in the annual mating game! You can then try to identify the calls here -



  • If you’re lucky enough to have a garden, Gardeners’ World have suggested 10 gardening projects for primary school children:

  • The Great Bug Hunt  competition,
