SUNFLOWERS FOR UKRAINE
We took a stroll around the school grounds to see what habitats we have. We realised that there are many more than we thought!
We then researched more habitats and have lots of plans to introduce more in the future!
Here are some of the habitats we found ...
BIRD FEEDERS FOR ALEXANDER CARE HOME AND ST. MARIE'S RC PRIMARY SCHOOL
We made some bird feeders, using lard, bird seed, apples and sunflower seeds. We shared them with our friends at Alexander Care Home!
We collected lots of natural objects from the school grounds and used them to make eco friendly Christmas decorations - the glitter is even bio-degradable!
We want to develop this part of the school grounds into a wildlife area. Here we are having a look around to see what we already have and what ideas we can come up with to develop it!
We had a visit from a gardener, who looked at the area we want to develop into our wildlife area, listened to our ideas and gave us lots of other, really exciting ideas!
BRITISH WILDLIFE COMPETITION
We entered a British wildlife competition - here are some of our entries!
The Big Garden Birdwatch
Hello Eco Club!
We hope you are all keeping safe and working hard during lockdown!
We heard about the Big Garden Birdwatch taking place this weekend and thought of you. It is happening from Friday 29th January 2021 until Sunday 31st January 2021 and you can do it at ANY POINT this weekend. All you need is an hour! Click on the link below and it will take you to the instruction page:
Once you have done the Big British Birdwatch, all you need to do is send in your results online. Just scroll down to the bottom of the webpage on the link ABOVE and click SUBMIT YOUR RESULTS. Easy peesy!
We have attached some documents below to help you identify the birds you see and also a HOW TO GUIDE.
If you click on the link below, there is also a nice little quiz - 'Which garden bird are you?' Take the quiz and let us know! We will do it too!
There are also some tips and advice from a famous photographer called Ben Andrew, who will tell you how to take the perfect photograph of the birds you see during the Big Garden Birdwatch. We'd absolutely LOVE to see any photographs you take.
Good luck and happy bird spotting!
Eco club have been busy making Bird Feeders out of recycled materials. We researched designs and used recycled materials to make our 'Bird Themed' Bird Feeders. We hope the Birds enjoy using them over the cold winter months! Here are some photos.
