everywhere! All pupils at Derwent Vale were excited to
take part in the RSPB Big Bird Watch in the last week of
used her DIY expertise, ably assisted by Miss Kane, to
create a fabulous bird hide, allowing the children to
spend time watching and recording different bird species
landing in and around the school grounds.
During the week, children made bird food, created
fantastic art work, recorded information on graphs and
charts and spent a long time simply staying still and
watching out for birds.
As we all
know, staying still can be quite tricky, but all
children lived up to the challenge fantastically well.
News got out about the activities going on in school,
and the News and Star sent a reporter to find out
exactly what was going on!
