Spring Bulbs for Schools
Climate-change study in your own school yard
Science & Geography (KS2)
Make use of your outdoor classroom! Join the 150 schools taking part in this exciting investigation.
Spring Bulbs for Schools provides primary school pupils with the opportunity to adopt, study and record the development of spring bulbs as part of a spring watch network. Each pupil will receive a Tenby Daffodil, Crocus bulb and garden pot to record growth and flowering times.
Through collecting and comparing real data pupils discover how our changing climate is affecting our seasons and what this means for ourselves and the nature around us. Pupils take part in Professor Plant's Challenges to receive a super scientist certificate.
Any schools in Wales can take part as results are collected through the internet (or by post if necessary). This is an on-going investigation which means schools can take part year after year.
