Wildlife gardens

imageimage

Year one spent discovery time collecting together some of the materials required too make their wildlife garden. Over the coming months the whole year group will be designing, collecting materials and building their own wildlife garden that will remain theirs right up into year six. If you can help in any way the children will be very grateful, they need things such as half rolls of roofing felt, fish pond liner, pipes, various containers, unwanted plants, in fact any thing that could be used to create a fantastic wildlife garden.
Oh and wellies for next term please.

We need your help

Outdoor learning at Norbury Hall School needs your help.
The Winter, the rain and the mud are now here in force, and the children still love to go outside. The Gardening Club, Outdoor Learning and the Forest School are in desperate need for suitable footwear for the children. To save school shoes from getting too dirty we are looking for any donations off unused, unloved children’s wellies of any size. Starting on Monday 25th January we will have plastic bins clearly marked, and placed at all the school entrances, in to which you can place your old wellies.
You might be able to help further, if you have any suitable child size (age four to twelve) waterproof leggings or tops you don’t want any more these would be gratefully received, and could be placed in the same plastic bins.
Many Thanks
Mr Hulme-Duvall

Rspb big school birdwatch

imageimageThe children of Norbury Hall Primary have fun in the RSPB Big School Birdwatch. No problem with enthusiasm as the children brave the cold to see how many of our British native garden birds they can spot, identify and record during the lesson. The collated information will be entered onto the RSPB web site, and along with many other schools across the UK will help inform our understanding of our garden birds.

Seedy string and suet balls

Year one make suet balls to feed the school wildlife. Spending your time squishing lard and flower together might not be a high priority, but for the wild creatures that share our gardens it can mean the difference between life and death over the cold winter months. Once completed the suet balls were distributed throughout the schools wild areas providing the vital needs for the mammals and birds that visit our school.
