Introducing our Bird Feeding Area and Bird-Hide!

Wednesday, 8 February 2017

Our Langley and Coppice Forest Rangers meet up and enjoy working and playing together every Tuesday lunchtime. Over the last few weeks, they have helped to create these two lovely bird feeding areas, topping up the feeders and making new ones each week. The new bird hide is looking great and we’ve spotted some birds looking very interested in visiting us!

This has been a great way for our two schools to learn together. The children have worked brilliantly as a team, have enjoyed learning new names, making new friends and have been a real credit to both Langley and Coppice Schools. This is how they did it…

 

Today, we took part in the Big Schools Birdwatch with Lucy from the RSPB…

Firstly, we learnt how to identify different birds (Lucy was very impressed at how knowledgeable the children already were…they could already name several different species) Then we took our binoculars and ID charts and went bird spotting in different locations around the school grounds. We spotted crows, wood pigeons, robins, a nuthatch, blackbirds, herring-gulls, magpies and great tits and at the end of the afternoon we submitted our results online.

LANGLEY IS A SCHOOL WHERE INDIVIDUALS ARE VALUED FOR THEMSELVES
AND WHERE ALL ARE EXPECTED TO GIVE OF THEIR BEST
