This week Thomas Buxton Primary School had a special visit from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).
Jo came in from the organisation to help years 2, 3 and 4 learn more about the local habitats that exist within the school grounds.
The children had the opportunity to observe carefully to identify the different habitats. A check list helped the children to find habitats including soil, compost, shrubs and bushes, gravel and trees.
After finding existing habitats the children had the chance to spot opportunities for creating more habitats for mini beasts and animals. Year 2 decided that a bird feeder on many of the trees would be an ideal way to get birds to use the school grounds as their habitat.
The visit was a really fun and exciting event and has spurred us on to try and gain a School’s Wild Challenge Award.
