Bird Club

The Bird Club is run by Mrs Burchell and meets on Wednesday lunchtimes from  12:45-1:15pm.
We learn all about birds and go birdwatching on the grounds one the school.
In July we completed the British Trust for Ornithology Citizen & Scientist campaign - "What's Under Your Feet?"
In January we took part in the RSPB's Big Schools' Birdwatch.

On 23rd March we took part in a survey called 'What's Under Your Feet?' which was an invertebrates survey. We looked on the school field for earthworms; here's what we found.

We have our very own  Wildlife Area here at Harold Wood Primary as we are fortunate enough to have such a lovely playing field.


The aim is to:

  • Develop scientific knowledge and understanding

  • Develop understanding of nature, processes and methods of science

  • Understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

  • Stimulate creativity and curiosity


The children play an important part in the development of this area.

The first task was to get the whole school involved in a bulb planting exercise. For the last two springs we have enjoyed beautiful daffodils. We also installed an 'insect hotel' and are currently enjoying the wildflowers that were sown at the end of the summer term.
