ECO CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK!

Art and nature go hand in hand, be inspired by the natural world.

Your challenge this week is to use recycled materials to create a sculpture or mural of your favourite animal.  You could create a fact file about your animal to go with it.  We would love you to send any photographs to us at fharper@smallwood.cheshire.sch.uk 

 

Spring is definitely on its way!

In the File Manager I have put a Biodiversity Audit. You can carry out this audit at home in your garden and send the results back to me. We will do it in the school grounds. This could be carried out as part of Science week which is running from  Monday1st March. 

Mindfulness

ECO Schools have put together an ECO Schools Mindfulness at home pack. Please check the file manager and have a look at some of the activities. 

Fleur Bear

Bird Watch 2021

Thank you for the your results you sent in. My garden at home had lots of blackbirds and field fares eating the windfall apples aswell as nuthatch, chaffinch, blue tit and great tit. 

Elm class spent their playtimes bird watching, thiough birds and children playing don't always mix!

Our results are for each bird the total seen at one time.

34 jackdaws

15 crows

14 pigeons

8 sparrows

2 blackbirds

2blue tits

2 great tits

2 pied wagtails

2 robins 

1 buzzard

We have repositioned our bird feeders in the sensory, wildlife garden hoping that this will be a better place to attract small birds, where there is some protection for them.

Let's hope our numbers improve. 

Thanks

Mrs. Harper, Mrs Molyneux and the Eco Team
