On Friday 21st June children learnt all about bats. They made bats and learnt numerous facts about our nocturnal friends. Throughout the day ten activities were completed, which was enough to earn the children an award.
For several children it was a very late night, as they were invited back for bat walk. We went around the school field, playground and down to the church and church yard. Using bat detectors we were able to hear the bats as they approached and then saw them as they whizzed past us. We found 4 different types of bat and even got the opportunity to see two rescue bats up close. Although it was a late night the children thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
