Year 7 Geographers at Barlby High have been lucky enough to meet a grass snake, legless lizard, leaf insect and a tarantula this week thanks to a fabulous project with Project: WILD C.I.C.
Project: WILD C.I.C. (Community Interest Company) exists to engage more young people with their natural world, working towards a core aim of tackling mental health, isolation and social issues with young people.
They work with local schools, community groups and charities to deliver workshops in the classroom and out in nature to teach young people about the wonderful wildlife on their doorstep. Additionally, they produce physical and digital teaching and learning materials for use in school and at home to encourage understanding, appreciation and excitement about our wildlife and habitats.
Many thanks to Nick Atherton from Project: WILD C.I.C. for delivering these brilliant sessions in adaptations, and for the engaging assemblies about Climate Change, Nature and Wellbeing.
Thanks Hope colleagues for sharing your own career development and your schools journey with our fantastic school direct teachers. @HopeLT_York @Barlby_High @manorceacademy @grahamschool @georgepindarsch @ValeYorkAcademy #nqt #schooldirect pic.twitter.com/zGKD…

Last visit of the trip was to Essex Farm cemetery where Rosie and Jess read 'In Flanders Field' and we paid tribute to Valentine Strudwick who was 15 years old when he lost his life @Barlby_High @HoltsTours pic.twitter.com/IqhG…
