This video, from Teachers TV, follows two schools as they take part in the RSPB's Big Schools' Birdwatch. This is a survey in which children observe birds in a bid to discover more about the wildlife in their local area. The activity is a good example of learning outside the classroom.
Those involved spend an hour counting different species and the numbers of birds visiting the school's grounds.
The children from each school become involved in a range of activities including making bird food and feeders, creating make-shift observation hides from classroom windows, as well as counting the numbers and species of birds in their school grounds.
