Naturally Thriving

We had Devon Wildlife Trust join us for an assembly on Friday. I was delighted to welcome Paul Martin, who is their Education Officer. He met our Eco Warriors after the assembly.

Our focus on wildlife has got off to a tremendous start with real excitement from the children in their nature theme classrooms. 5RC are gleefully tracking grey squirrels and Reception are coming up with fox-theme facts to bring into school to go with their fox masks! We have newly dug beds outside the Lower School for some planting and I enjoy updating everyone with my ‘Nature News’!

On Monday there was a hedgehog snuffling around as I came back from my choir rehearsal. I saw three beautiful deer in the field next to Abram Block as I walked Benji at 7.30am. I wish I had had my camera at the ready but they looked just like the featured image! As we go to sleep we hear the tawny owls calling to each other.

The school is in such a wonderful location and we are lucky to embrace nature on our doorstep. We launch our photography competition after half term and will be delighted to welcome Emma Solley to talk to us all about her photography work.
