Appleton Wiske County Primary School
NatureSpy ran 2 sessions at Appleton Wiske Primary School; firstly setting camera traps out on school grounds to see what visits when the children go home and secondly setting camera traps out in their Forest School area.
This was followed up by talks to children ranging in age from 5-12 about the images the camera traps obtained (foxes & roe deer amongst others), other images NatureSpy had captured, British and global wildlife, wildlife adaptations (such as camouflage) and also items for the children to touch, feel and learn about (such as fossils, bones, feathers etc).
Headteacher Mrs. Sally Morris said:
“The children were fascinated by the pictures. I would highly recommend NatureSpy’s sessions as their approach and communication skills are excellent and subject knowledge ensures interactive and interesting delivery of curriculum areas linked to work in school.”
