Severnside Birds (Watery Treasures)
A website providing an insight into the birds (and some other wildlife) that live in the Lower Severn Vale.
- Pupils should study and raise questions about their local environment throughout the year (Year 5 Science).
- Pupils should be taught to identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways (Year 6 Science).
Ideas for activities:
- Set up a birdwatching group within the school who make a birdwatching diary throughout the year. Use the website to identify species and the times of the year they are likely to be in the area.
- Look at the birds in their habitats and use the information about the birds’ migrating habits on the website to spot how the birds are well-adapted to their environment.
