We had a fantastic morning doing the Big School Bird Watch! We were split into four groups and sent to different areas around the school. We had to be very quiet and we used binoculars to look more closely at the birds. We had to record what type of birds we saw down on a special sheet. At the end we counted them all and we were surprised at how many birds visit our school. We saw a robin, black birds, pigeons and seagulls. The seagulls were very noisy!
We had a fantastic morning at the Walled Garden! We have been thinking a lot about our senses. We used our sense of seeing to find Tappy who was hiding in Castle Park. We used our sense of touch to collect lots of different leaves and acorns and conkers. We used our sense of hearing to listen to the birds and a squirrel that was scurrying about! We used our sense of taste when stopped to have our break in the band stand in the Walled Garden. Finally we used our sense of smell when we went into the green house and smelt the lovely tropical plants. It was also very warm in there!
We had just enough time for a quick play in the play park before the bus came back to collect us!
You may have read the article in the Spectator about a Bug Hotel in Groomsport. We are in the process of making one in our outdoor play area. If you have any pieces of wood, shells or bricks that you no longer need could you please send them into school? Hopefully our Hotel will be bugtastic!
