Eco Club

Eco Club

Eco club start in the Spring term.  Check back then to see what they are doing.

Last year we have took part in the Big Schools’ Birdwatch. We walked around our school environment looking and listening for birds. When we saw a bird we recorded it on a tally chart. The most popular bird at Shaw Ridge is the magpie. Our data has now been sent to the RSPB. We will continue to feed the birds and hope to encourage more species to visit Shaw Ridge. Look out for our bird fact cards on the Eco board. We spent time investigating life in the bug house and pond during the winter.
