What’s under your feet?

Today Karen McKelvie, from the RSPB, came to work with us on the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology) Under your feet survey. As part of our animal project we will be surveying the school grounds to see how many invertebrates there are here. They are an important part of the local food chains. We will also be doing bird surveys. All this is part of the Citizen science project and we will be uploading our data for a national project three times during the year.

Here are some photos from this morning, when we dug our pits and then looked for the invertebrates, we were surprised to find so few.





Tammy’s first full day in Montpellier

Today Tammy has been in class learning some French grammar and then he went exploring in the city. He has been finding the answers to a few of your questions.

Drew asked ‘What do people eat in France?’

Tammy said ‘They eat lots of different things, like 🐌, which Ms Scanlan enjoyed, and lots of local cheeses, meat, fish and fresh vegetables.

And they have lots of different types of pancakes, savoury and sweet.

Callum asked if the French eat frogs’ legs, but I haven’t seen any yet!

Robert wanted to know do they have skyscrapers in Montpellier, there are some lovely old buildings but I haven’t seen any skyscrapers. Callum asked what sort of houses they have, so I’ve taken a few photos for you.

And after a busy day I had a bit of time relaxing. Robert wanted to know what do children play, and I had fun with some, playing in the park.

Bonne nuit , à demain.
