On Thursday, Primary 3 and Primary 3/4 took part in the RSPB Big Schools Birdwatch. The children reused old yoghurt pots to make bird feeders to encourage birds to visit our school and were delighted to see birds feeding from them. Both classes showed fantastic enthusiasm for learning about birds in our local area! The most common birds they identified were crows, blackbirds, wagtails and robins. Well done Primary 3 and Primary 3/4!
