BIO-DIVERSITY 2019 – 2020
During Lockdown, the pupils have been encouraged to keep up their Eco work at home. Some have chosen to make their own bug hotels (we hear they are 5* establishments).
This is part of our ACTION PLAN this year:
We are trying to raise awareness of mini-beasts through the school. Each class has been learning about and drawing specific mini beasts.
P1 – Spiders, P2 – Ladybirds, P3 – Snails, P4 – Butterflies, P5 – Worms, P6 – Bees & P7 – Dragonflies
Our aim is to make and paint huge wooden mini beasts and put these next to our large KIRKHILL PRIMARY SIGN on our school fence.
We are having an Eco Day on Monday 5th February 2018 focusing on mini beasts, feeding birds, and planting.
Our Eco Day Work
The Finished Mini-beasts
All classes regularly do projects on animals and plants. This year so far P4 has done a project on birds and P2 have done a project on Pets.
The Eco Committee are working closely with the Kirkhill and Bunchrew Community Trust (KBCT). In January both groups spent the day learning about native trees at Reelig Glen.
The Eco Committee are keen to share what they learned about trees with the rest of the school. They are working on their presentations at the moment.
The Gardening group have been learning about worms with the Ranger. They enjoy doing ‘bio-diversity’ treasure hunts in our school grounds too.
