This year, Ark Tindal has been participating in a research project led by the RSPB (the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) and funded by the National Heritage Green Recovery Fund. Delivered by NCCB (Naturally Connected Communities Birmingham), a team within the RSPB, this research project builds on our Academy embracing the benefits of engaging in learning outdoors on a child’s long-term memory, behaviour and attainment.
The RSPB note:
"This award scheme is all about supporting school-based learning. It enables pupils to apply curriculum knowledge and skills, as well to develop their resilience and sense of agency through outdoor learning".
Each class participated in a minimum of 2 challenges, each themed around experiencing and helping nature, ranging from making posters to share with the community (displayed at Moseley Road Baths), to constructing hedgehog houses out of recycled materials!
We can’t wait for the pupils who took part to receive their certificates shortly!
