New Club – Wildlife

Our school is situated in an AONB, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with several SSSI (Sites of Special Scientific Interest) nearby, the most prized designation for a nature site. Immediately we step outside, we are surrounded by a great diversity of plants, insects and birds. In the evening we can hear owls from the playground and swallows nest in the school building. When we opened a moth trap in the playground one morning, we identified hundreds of specimens, many rare. Class 1 have been going out regularly and the new Y5/6 wildlife club on Thursdays has encouraged a new interest in botany.
