RSPB Visit 5.6.18
This week Yr5 got a special visit from the RSPB, we got the chance to do a bio blitz to help find some endangered wildlife species. We found out that our school has a great eco system by finding several species of insects, frogs & birds. Yr5 saw baby magpies getting fed by their mother, some fantastic frogs & many mini beasts. We all got the chance to use special equipment like bug nets, some magnificent magnifying pots & some binoculars. Written by Theo, Aggie, MJ & Mollie.
On Monday 8.1.18, the RSPB came into Year 1 to go on a habitat walk within our grounds. We were given maps of the school and had a checklist of features to look for.
We found bushes, trees, log piles, dead wood, a hedgehog home, compost bins, flower beds and a pond and lots more. All of these places gave our animals a habitat. However, when we looked for available food sources in the Winter we realised there wasn't much available. The children decided to make bird feeders to help the birds during the winter months.
