Inspired for a project challenge!
Year 4 had a really exciting trip to Seaton Jurassic as part of our Devon Wildlife Champions project. We took part in a number of hands on activities and workshops inspired by our natural surroundings. The aims of the day were to increase our knowledge of local wildlife and understand some of the challenges facing it.
We learnt about Things that fly and took a glimpse into the world of some of our flying creatures and how we can help them. Marvellous mammals made us ponder who might be living around or visiting our school grounds and how we can help make sure they are safe. In All about the sea we learnt about some of the amazing creatures that live under the waves and how we can all make a difference in protecting the oceans. Throughout the day we loved getting our hands dirty making seed bombs, fat ball bird feeders and bug hotels, getting some great ideas for some projects we might do at school to help our local wildlife.
The next step for us will be to plan how we can use Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to take action to help wildlife by thinking of innovative solutions reactive to our school’s needs and reflect our unique community and surrounding wildlife. Any ideas would be welcome!
We look forward to becoming the next generation of Wildlife Champions and will aim to make a measurable impact on wildlife and share our successes with the wider community, inspiring real change.
