The Wildlife trust visited us On Thursday 18th September. We talked about birds of prey and their habitats. We dissected owl pellets to find out what they eat.
It was very exciting! We found skulls and bones and even webbed feet. We think the owls have eaten voles and mice and a mole.

RSPB Garden Birdwatch
This is a national event which is a great activity to do with your children. You can even stay indoors!
All you need to do is spend an hour over the weekend of 24-25 January counting the birds in your garden.
The more people involved, the more the RSPB can learn. All details are on the website, where you will find more information including identification charts, bird song to listen to and how to submit your results. Simply search RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch.
As part of our awareness of garden birds we would like to invite the children to take photographs of garden birds. They can print the photographs and bring them to Mrs Butt in puffins or attach them to an email and send them to school to
The Eco group did a fabulous job decorating the giant pots we received from Morrisons voucher scheme. Thank you to everyone who collected for us. Look out for the Potatoes we have already planted in two of them.
Rumour has it that we planted a couple of small children in them!

November Energy Month
Building on our successful Switch Off Fortnight campaign, we’re launching Energy Month this year in November. It’s an opportunity for children to learn, act and inspire. There will be resources covering: the big energy issues e.g. security of supply and how to produce energy in a low carbon way as well as information and activities on how to reduce the amount of energy we use.
Well Done St George’s
The Eco team found 22 lights on when they did their first survey. On Wednesday, there
were only 9 lights left on in empty rooms.
Remember if there is no-one in the room
Please encourage your child to save energy.

The Big Tidy Up
On Saturday 18th March children from St George’s helped tidy up the village as part of The Big Tidy Up nation wide event. Taking part in the Big Tidy Up is a great way to teach children about the problem of litter. With litter being a major issue for many schools across the country.
