On Wednesday 28th November Allan Archer, the Education Officer at Pensthorpe Natural Park, led our Forest School session. He started by talking to Y4/5 about the evolution of birds and showed us different feathers which we investigated to work out which type of bird they may have come from. We dissected an egg and looked closely at the different parts and how they helped in the development of the chick. After that, we looked at the shapes of different birds' skulls and tried to work out their diet from the shape of their beaks. Finally, we investigated some abandoned birds' nests. We all thoroughly enjoyed the session and are now keen to see the different types of birds that visit our school.
