P4/5 RSPB Tree Planting

This week the P4 and P5 class went to Forest Lodge to help plant 120 Aspen tree saplings. We rode in a trailer up to Ryvoan Bothy which was very BUMPY! It was lots of hard work but everyone did a great job. You had to clear away a patch of the heather and then dig down to make a hole to bury the sapling in. Then you had to shout out “Tree test!” to make sure you had planted the sapling properly. In 3 to 10 years we will be able to go and see how big they are. In 10 years some of us will be 18 years old!

Bird Hide – Work In Progress

Mr Ross has been working with Ben and Jack to renovate the bird hide in the school woods. Today they started by taking off all the of the old tarpaulin. They are planning to make it more camouflaged with sticks and branches and to lower the ground inside it so that people can stand up inside it. Lots of work to be done yet!
