How many common birds can YOU identify? Do you see birds visiting your feeders and wonder what they are?
As part of our WildLearning in school, we want to encourage all pupils to learn how to identify a range of common species of birds that they might see around school. We are putting in lots of exciting spaces to help them learn more about birds and have set up an great new challenge which we would love ALL pupils (and staff!) to take part in!
You may have already seen our wonderful bird hide and our feeding station. This area will be full of interactive displays to help everyone learn to ID the birds and hopefully, they will also see some of them feeding on our feeding stations so they can get practising their ID skills! There is also a display outside the staffroom showing the levels and who has achieved each of the levels.
To recognise 6 of the species most likely to be seen on our feeders or around the school grounds.....
Here are the 6 birds you need to learn for Level 1.
You can practise you ID skills using the NEW resources available! Click on the Level 1 badge below to practise your Level 1 Birds
You will get a Level 1 Bird ID Badge & certificate when you can recognise these 6 birds
To recognise 12 of the species most likely to be seen on our feeders or around the school grounds.....
(6 of these are the species you learnt for Level 1!)
There are 12 birds to learn for Level 2, but 6 of them you have already learnt in Level 1!!!
So, there are only 6 new ones to learn!
You will get a Level 2 Bird ID Badge & certificate and a wildlife pen, pencil, eraser or ruler when you can recognise these 12 birds
You will get a Level 3 Bird ID Badge & certificate and a great bird book so you can learn even more species, when you can recognise these 20 birds. You will also feature on WildlifeKate's website and the school website!
To recognise 20 of the species most likely to be seen on our feeders or around the school grounds.....
