For Day 13 of 30 Days Wild I went back to my Primary school to talk about 30 Days Wild.
It was really nice to be invited back and to see some of my ex-teachers especially the one who encouraged my love of wildlife.
I met the group of year 6’s where their Forest school takes place.
After being introduced to everyone I talked a little about my passion for wildlife, my blog and photography. Then they told me about their Random Acts Of Wildness they have been doing for 30 Days Wild.
Everyone then had half an hour to explore the area looking for signs of wildlife or making rope swings.
A small group of us spent some time looking under logs and in the base of trees. We were lucky enough to come across a Violet Ground beetle, a mouse, a centipede, plenty of hazelnut shells left by squirrels, fox poo and the remains of a Jackdaw.
After drinks and biscuits the children talked about
F – First A – Attempt I – In L – Learning
Each person got the chance to tell the group what they would like to improve on. Mine was patience while waiting for the opportunity to take a photo.
Big thank you to my old school for inviting me to join them for the afternoon and I hope everyone enjoys continuing with their 30 Days Wild.
