Winterwatch - Live Lesson

Take a closer look at the UK's winter wildlife

This Live Lesson, in collaboration with the team at BBC Two’s Winterwatch, might just be our wildest lesson ever!

The programme, designed for KS2/2nd Level science pupils, investigates living things and their habitats, the impact of seasonal changes on our wildlife, and the interdependence between all living things.

It’s presented by Naomi Wilkinson and Patrick Aryee with expert wildlife biologist Lizzie Daly, and features links with Chris Packham in the Winterwatch studio in the wildest part of the UK - the Cairngorms National Park.

This edited programme was streamed live to schools in January 2019. Please note that we are no longer reviewing emails and messages from schools for inclusion in the lesson or on the page.
