The Great Bug Hunt 2019

Show us what lurks within the habitats in your school grounds…


… Your school playing field, the hedges, flower beds, trees and long grass, under logs or stones or underground – an adventure in the offing to be had!


Whichever year group you teach, to delve into the exciting world of bug hunting and watch the excitement, the enthusiasm building, the inspiration mounting and the subsequent learning flood from your pupils is a truly thrilling experience.


So get involved in the biggest bug hunt you’ve ever done and enter for a chance to win a fabulous Bug Day in your school!


The 2019 Great Bug Hunt Competition for Primary Schools - Encourage pupils to get outside to learn more about living things and their habitats and to use the outdoor classroom. Simply identify a local habitat, get the pupils to explore and discover the minibeasts (bugs) that live there, draw them and record their findings – it’s that easy!
