On 24 May and 7 and 14 June 2016 FoCG volunteers and the RHS Community Outreach Advisor, Chris Young facilitated outdoor learning sessions for Years 1, 2 and 3 of Prior Weston primary school. A total of 180 children in six sessions. The 90 minute sessions covered pollinators, identification of plants and parts of the flower, collecting and recording insect species, habitats and eco systems and how birds are adapted to different habitats and sources of food. Children created rainbow palettes of leaves and seeds and played Pollinator Tag.
