Hill House students recently took part in the RSPB’s 'Big School’s Bird Watch'.
The day was full of birdwatching activities including 'Big card Bird Watching Games' where students learnt key facts about each type of bird.
There were also matching pairs games, where students had to look really carefully to find the picture that was 'the same'. This was followed by bird watching activities where everyone wrapped up warm, went outdoors and counted the birds that they saw.
Students also had a go at making their own bird feeders which they hung up outside the classrooms.
The resources from the RSPB offered a wide range of activities, covering many areas of the curriculum. Students needed to use their numeracy skills to count as well as use their creative skills to create the best bird feeders.
The day was a great opportunity to learn about the birds that we are so lucky to see in our school environment. Everyone enjoyed it so much that we are sure bird watching will now become a regular part of the school day!
