Bug and minibeast hotels, a hedgehog home and bird boxes are all among works for wildlife done within a nature club that began eight months ago at Epworth Primary Academy.

Birdwatcher Robert Fish talked to children about the RSPB’s Big School Birdwatch prior to the school taking part in that project. And a sensory garden is being created with benches made from recycled tyres and donated wood.

A gardening club is working to improve the school grounds. Each class has its own ‘tyre garden’ to design and cultivate.

Teacher Ramona Czaplinski has introduced ‘an artist a term’ as another theme, with children studying the work of George Seurat and Pointillism, and Picasso’s abstract art. Created artworks are placed on display for all to admire.
