What's Under Your Feet Campaign

 

Both Eco-School and School Council take part in this survey in the autumn term.  There job is to dig up 30cm by 30cm squares of the school ground and count what kinds of invertebrates inhabit it.  This data is fed back to the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) to help understand better the relationship between climate, the availability of invertebrates and how this impacts UK bird numbers and their migration patterns.  It is fabulous to see the children get hands on, doing science in the great outdoors!  This will hopefully repeated each year.
