SUNFLOWERS FOR UKRAINE

HABITAT HUNT

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!

CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS

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!

WILDLIFE AREA

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!

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!

KS2 Eco Clubs have been hard at work making bird feeders ready for the winter.

Seed planting - Eco club have planted flowers seeds in egg boxes to grow seedlings that we can plant out in Spring. We are also have a friendly competition to see who can grow the tallest sunflower... watch this space!

Bird Feeders! 

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.

Eco club had a fantastic time making our own Bug Hotel 'Bug-ingham Palace'! Thank you so much to all the parents and carers who sent in items for us to use. We hope you are as impressed as the bugs who are enjoying their stay!

Eco club have been really busy tidying the inner garden and planting bulbs in our new planter.

We have fish and a very shy frog in our pond.

During the poor weather, Eco Club planted vegetable seeds in our homemade plant pots made from recycled newspaper.  We have just planted out these seedlings so are looking forward to tasting some delicious home-grown vegetables!
