As well as raising funds for the school, the children and FOSH also raise money for local and overseas charities. The children organise fundraising events such as non-uniform days, sponsored dog walking, cake sales, and readathons to support the following charities:
Welcome to our Wildlife Explorers.
Our Wildlife Explorers club is affliliated to the RSPB. We get copies of the RSPB childrens' magazines and lots of information.
We meet every Thursday lunchtime to discuss what birds we have seen during the week. We also are making an area of the school grounds into a Nature reserve, complete with BirdCam, nest boxes, Feeders, a pond and a tree stump seating area.
RSPB Club - things to do in November
Look out for migratory birds. You might see Redwings or Fieldfares in the garden. You also might see large flocks of geese, especially in the countryside.
Have a look at the Shrubs in your garden, especially the Holly Bushs. Do they have lots of berries? Folk lore says that if there are lots of red berries on Holly Bushs in October and November then we are in for a hard winter with lots of snow. It's supposed to be Nature's way of making sure there is food for the birds.
In November we are able to see the Leonids - one of the annual meteor showers in the night skies. These peak around the 17th November and should be easily visible on a clear night.
Don't forget to start feeding your garden birds. Even old biscuits, cake and fruit can be put out, but bread should be only used in moderation.
