In Art we have been working on detailed drawings of different wading birds which will be exhibited at a pop-up gallery in Quarff Hall on 12th May. This exhibition hopes to highlight the huge decline in some of the waders found across the whole of the UK.
We hope you will come along and see our work.
Here are some of our completed drawings ready to be displayed.
On Friday afternoon Matthew Smith, a volunteer from the RSPB came to help us with our hour of birdwatching. We took it in turns to go out in groups, while the rest of the class made fatballs to feed the birds and did some drawings of some of the birds that we are likely to see from the classroom.
We have started to see quite a few species, since we have been putting feed out. We also saw a lot of waders starting to come through after all the wind this week. We’ve all seen redshank, curlew and oystercatchers and we’re learning to identify a few of the gull species too. There are always lots of starlings around and house sparrows and a robin came to feed a couple of weeks ago.
Ms Scanlan is going to upload the species that we saw onto the RSPB website.
