Birds on Loch Leven (Primary)

​In Kinross, P7 pupils visited Vane Farm Nature Reserve with children from their local secondary. They learnt about birds, made some drawings and sketches then turned these into cards, which were sold to raise money for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). The pupils put their maths skills to use calculating migration distances and then wrote a poem about their experiences with the help of a local poet. Back in the classroom, the children used the internet to find out even more.
