Last week, Harborne and Nethercote classes enjoyed an afternoon with the Wildlife Trust who came to teach us about the wildlife we have on our school site and how we could encourage even more wildlife.
Nethercote class looked for signs of birds, created seed pods from mud and newspaper, made bird feeders and created herb smoothies. Harborne class also created their own bird feeders, using lard and bird seed, planted wildflower seeds in paper pots and used clay to create little models of wildlife.
It was a lovely experience for the children and a chance to appreciate our environment and school site. Harborne class came away with lots of ideas on how to encourage even more wildlife onto our school premises and gardens at home.
