We formed mini groups made up of older children with younger children. We had to go around the grounds of the school and map out the building, the yard, the court, the pitch, the garden, the prefab, the trees, the bushes and the wall. It's a bit tricky with the extension as the building has changed its shape. Here is a photo of us back in the classroom doing the proper map on A3 pages.
Large Scale Habitat Map of the School - Year 2
This habitat map is organic. It is changing all the time. It is displayed on our green-schools notice board so it is accessible at all times. Pupils report to the green-schools committee any time they see any insects, birds or animals and they are drawn in on the map. We think it is working well so far. In spring time, we plan on adding in plants too.
