Bird Watching in Schools

Description

Follow two schools as they take part in the RSPB's Big Schools' Birdwatch in a bid to discover more about the wildlife in their local area.

The scheme encourages schools to get involved in the RSPB's work through cross curricular activities. Those involved spend an hour counting different species and the numbers of birds visiting the school's grounds.

Surrey Square Infants is an inner city school, in London, whilst Woolenwick Infants and Nursery school is in leafy Hertfordshire. The RSPB are clear that it's important to collect information from these different environments.

The pupils from each school become involved in a range of activities including making bird food and feeders, creating make-shift hide outs from classroom windows, as well as counting the numbers and species of birds in their school grounds.
