Year 3 have been getting up close and personal with nature!
The children have enjoyed taking part in the RSPB’s ‘Wild Challenge’, and we are pleased to announce that, last week they received their Bronze Award having met the criteria required to complete the Bronze Award level.
The ‘Wild Challenge’ is a scheme for schools run by the RSPB encouraging children to help wildlife and explore nature. This is ideal for pupils at Mowden Hall School as we love to inspire our children to connect, care and understand the nature around us, enabling the children to work towards these Awards within their Woodland Classroom School sessions.
The children studied the wildlife surrounding the school, and looked at the variety of animals within the school grounds, exploring and identifying their habitats.
We focused on birds and made a variety of different bird feeders, everyone was amazed to see the broad variety of birds that visit our school.
This is a fantastic scheme which allows our children to learn and engage with nature and wildlife all around. We are extremely fortunate that the children have the opportunity to spend time and play in such a beautiful woodland setting, which has an abundance of wildlife.
The children are thoroughly delighted with their Bronze Award and are now all inspired to take on the next challenges set for the Silver Award.
