There have been several new lunchtime clubs launched this term in the Prep school, which have proved very popular with our pupils. Bird Club run by our Year 3 teacher Mrs Bird has been a hit with our nature-loving boys and girls.
Mrs Bird’s ‘tweet’,
“Bird club’s fifth week was marked by the unveiling of a splendid bird table, two window feeders and two hanging feeders kindly funded by the Parent Association. Our young bird watchers have had great fun using binoculars, identifying birds and keeping a log of birds spotted in their gardens, as well as looking out for nests and collecting a variety of feathers and even some skulls!
Our next project after half-term will be designing bird boxes in readiness for the nesting season in the spring time.
Meanwhile, as the weather becomes colder, don’t forget to feed your garden birds with nuts, seeds, cheese and bacon rind. I would love to see photos or drawings of birds you have spotted, so please bring them into school for our bird club display outside the Year 3 classroom.”
