Your Summer

This week we heard from Matilda. She has been in Dorset helping a bird warden ring birds. Over 900000 birds are ringed in Britain and Ireland each year. The British Trust for Ornithology runs the scheme and it is used to provide information about how long birds live and where they go.

In this photograph, Matilda is about to release a sand martin. If you’d like any more information about sand martins, please click here.

Canaries adventure for Samaara!

Great to hear from Samaara (Year 1) and her family, who have been visiting Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.  As you can see, Samaara did a lot while there; seeing the volcanoes, up close with dolphins, camel ride and parasailing!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Whilst tending to the grounds today, Mr Young came across this rather large caterpillar. It is an elephant hawk-moth caterpillar which is one of the largest caterpillars found in the British Isles. The species is named after its resemblance to an elephant’s trunk. Eventually, it will turn into a beautiful elephant hawk-moth as shown below. Have a look at this fascinating video, too!
