On Thursday afternoon all the children from Reception to Form VI wrapped up warm to take part in the RSPB’s Big Schools Birdwatch. The children paired up across different year groups and were given a location around the school where they could enjoy a peaceful moment looking out for the different types of birds at Longacre.

Magpies, Blackbirds, Woodpigeons and Pied Wagtails were the birds most frequently spotted by the children. The data collected by the children will contribute to the RSPB’s survey tracking the different types of birds located up and down the country.
