Year 6 Leavers’ Wildlife Project

Since returning to school after lockdown, Year Six have been working really hard on a wildlife project, which will be their legacy to the school.

To begin with they cleared and replanted the wildlife garden with herbs, flowers and fruit trees.  They then each researched an animal which might visit the garden.  Taking inspiration from the book The Lost Words, they created a beautiful book of art, poetry and information about each animal to gift to the school. Finally, each child designed and made an item for the garden to encourage their animal to visit.

This project has been fantastic for promoting positive well-being at this difficult time.  It has also been a chance for the children to give thanks for their time at St Thomas à Becket Primary School before their transition to secondary school.
