What's Under Your Feet Campaign
Both Eco-School and School Council took part in this experiment in October. Their job was to dig up 30cm by 30cm squares of the school grounds and count what kinds of invertebrates inhabited it. This data was 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 was a fabulous to see the children get hands on, doing science in the great outdoors! We will repeat this again next year.
