Beech class outside learning
On Thursday 25th February, Ash class enjoyed a visit from Penny Evans, an East Devon Education Ranger. We spent the afternoon getting to know the school grounds better. This included finding out more about the surprising range of creatures who share the space with us. We considered how we are interdependent on our environment and how small changes can have a big impact on food chains and wildlife numbers.
The afternoon was linked to our Religious Education, in which we are currently exploring Buddhist beliefs about the environment. We ended our session by making a ‘bee nest’, for Red Mason Bees, out of a large can and bamboo. We’re reliant on them, and other insects, to pollinate our food after all.
Penny’s visit was funded by the PTA, so a big thank you to everyone involved and to all those who support PTA fundraising events.
