Skiddaw class welcomed Jamie from Cumbria Wildlife Trust into school to help us learn more about the wonderful wildlife that is on our doorstep. He bought in a life size model of the rare and exciting bird of prey that is settling into to a very large nest in trees on Foulshaw Moss as you read this!
We learned a little about their migration and about how humans have changed their habitat and behaviour to encourage these fantastic fish eating birds back to our area. We are now busy making posters to let others know about how to appreciate and watch out for wildlife in our local area and we are going to be visiting the Foulshaw site later in the term.
The children of Levens made a great first impression with the Cumbria Wildlife Trust staff with their excellent answers and interesting questions alongside the thoughtful discussions that they engaged in. This looks like it will be a very worthwhile partnership.
