World Osprey Week

WOW… It’s World Osprey Week!

Monday 23rd March to Friday 27th March 2020

World Osprey Week or WOW! celebrates the return of the ospreys as they migrate north back to their summer breeding sites. These spectacular birds of prey are an excellent way of engaging young people with a love of wildlife and inspire using creative, social, and scientific areas of education.

WOW is an exciting opportunity for schools to follow the amazing migratory journeys of Rutland Ospreys with satellite trackers. We encourage schools to have their own WOW event, and make use of our free WOW Education Resources.


How can teachers, schools and educational groups get involved?

Free School Resources

Schools, educational groups, and home school groups can have free access to a huge range of osprey related educational resources, puzzles and games. The resources are divided into Primary and Secondary age groups on the website and cover almost every subject area of the curriculum
These can be used or adapted a

nd cover a wide range of subjects depending on interest or ability. These include pupil activity sheets, teacher’s notes, resour

ces sheets, lesson plans and even a one week curriculum plan for Primary Schools. including subject specific and many cross curricular themes. Be inspired in your teaching in World Osprey Week.WOW!
