Getting Totally Clued Up On The RED KITE

Fochriw Primary School's project was inspired by the Eco Committee who, together with their headteacher, were interested in finding out more about the Red Kites that the children often saw flying over the school.  This led to a fantastic cross-curricular investigation of the species and the children gained immense knowledge and pride in these magnificent birds of prey that were a part of their daily landscape.  It was great to see how involved the children were in the planning of what they were going to learn and their research, poetry, artwork and sculptures were all very impressive.  It was also fantastic to hear the children's opinions on all the work they had done and how it had impacted upon them.
