Shipham Church of England First School

RSPB Bird Watch

The children of Shipham First School have been actively involved in the RSPB Bird Watch this term. In addition to the special visit to Ham Wall to see the starlings murmuration, they have been monitoring and identifying all the different birds they see at school (particularly during Forest School), and also at home. They have really enjoyed the activity and it has provoked a great deal of discussion! The birds have benefitted from the children's creativity as they have been able to feast off the home made bird feeders, and the children have demonstrated a love of the birds through Art, creating some amazing pictures, showing how much they have learned about our beautiful feathered friends, and what we can do to protect them during these winter months, and indeed throughout the year.
