Chris Packham and NSP help schools get Closer to Nature

Posted on Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

January 2011

We’ve recently been working with Arla on their Closer to Nature campaign in schools and last week helped organise school visits for wild life expert, Chris Packham.

Chris was invited into three primary schools and gave assemblies encouraging children to leave their consoles behind, get outside and have fun with nature.  He then went into classrooms and got involved in helping the kids build bird feeders.  The campaign, which is targeted at 7-11 year olds, has been designed to get children and their families interested in nature and finding out more about their outdoor environment.  The assembly ideas, lesson plans and homework activities NSP have created all encourage this and Chris certainly brought the ideas to life with his school visits.

The schools visited, which included English Martyrs Catholic School in Worthing and The Dawney School in Great Bookham, were picked through the NSP geomapping expertise and they were all really excited to have Chris involved in the project for the day.

Susie Fordham from English Martyrs school summed the visit up very well, “The morning was a real success and everyone had a wonderful time. It was fantastic meeting Chris in person and I know he was a real inspiration to all the children. We are looking forward to very successful bird watching from now on with all our new feeders. Plus I am sure quite a few of the children’s gardens will now be displaying a recycled bird bottle feeder too!”
