Children receive special message from Springwatch stars!

Springwatch presenters give the children some special nature advice.

The children were inspired to write into BBC Springwatch presenters Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan. The pupils from Woodpecker Class wanted some tips on how they could care for the environment and Chris and Michaela responded with a lovely video message

Jessica Behan,  our Head of School and organiser of this unit of learning, said: "They are all really passionate about the environment so the pupils wrote to ask if Chris would kindly respond with a video to give them some advice on how they could look after their environment.

"The class were overjoyed when they received a personal video message in reply from Chris and Michaela with some wildlife tips for them. They were so excited!"

"I'm really proud of them because we always encourage the children to follow their passions and goals and to use the power of the written language to communicate this- and what better reason to write than for a real purpose."

Springwatch is filmed just down the road from us at the beautiful nature reserve Wild Ken Hill.
