13/09/18 - This week we all came together with the members from the School Council and Collective Worship Team to spend an afternoon with some visitors from the Church. Rev Hugh Barnes and Mike Buckland came to us and shared God's love of all creatures. We had a visit from Rose-Ann who brought Dan the pipistrelle bat along for us to meet.
We visited the church yard to look for signs of life and learned to walk like a beetle, great fun!
27/09/18 - This week we were very lucky to have Mike, Rev Steve and Mrs Baker in school. We started off by singing Who put the Colours in the Rainbow.
This week's theme was birds. We had a wonderful Barn Owl visit us along with his handler Sadie from Fur and Feathers. She told us all about owls in the wild, how they have adapted to their surroundings and how they hunt at night. We then went into the churchyard to listen out for birds. We did hear a few but the road was a little to noisy.
8/11/18 - For our final session this month we had an exciting afternoon with Rev Hugh, Mike and Owen who brought along a collection of exotic creatures for us to meet. There was Incey Wincey a tarantula, There were some stick insects from the Amazon Rainforest, a bearded dragon and a royal python. We were very privileged to be able to handle these wonderful creatures.
Rev Hugh taught us the Waggle Dance and we looked for bugs in the ECO garden, unfortunately they have all gone to bed for the winter!
We have really enjoyed our sessions and look forward to the Spring Term.
