Grassroots Challenge

Grassroots Challenge

Christine from Ulster Wildlife came to work with Year 8 pupils for 10 weeks.  They participated in a programme called the Grassroots Challenge and got involved in lots of wonderful things.  They had visits from bats, an owl and a hedgehog.  They made bird food, bird houses and a home for insects.  They did lots of gardening tidying up areas of the school and planting seeds, bulbs and shrubs.  Their vegetables are starting to sprout and they are very excited about the next stage of their project.
