Pupils at Ingoldisthorpe school.

Eagle-eyed pupils at Ingoldisthorpe Primary School have been busy bird watching.

The children spent a week watching and documenting more than 30 different types of bird during the recent high winds, hail and snow flurries.

The pupils were led by Richard and Frances Bysouth, volunteers from the RSPB Titchwell Marsh reserve.

Most of the bird watching revolved around the school’s specially designed bird hide, which has been equipped with binoculars and bird identification charts.

As well as tally charts, graphs and tables which showed the number of different birds spotted, the children uploaded the results of their observations to the RSPB’s Big Schools’ Bird Watch campaign website.

Some children produced detailed sketches of birds, while others made bird feeders from recycled bottles and wire.

Headteacher Sean Wright said: “We pride ourselves on giving all children a wide and balanced curriculum.

“Bird Watch week is a great example of combining hands-on practical outdoor learning with maths, art, design, science and writing. The positive response from parents, staff and the children is very encouraging.”
