Children at Bonhill Primary School learned how to be a friend of nature at a special outdoor day.

The SSPCA and RSPB visited the school and the children learned about orienteering, the reasons behind the beaks of different birds for feeding, and the importance of squirrels hiding their nuts.

Sat Bance, deputy head of Bonhill Primary, said: “The theme was animals and habitats and the activities were all supporting something called sustainable global goals.

“The mains points were climate action and life on land.

“We did a number of activities for the children to learn more about animals, their habitats and how important the environment is to them.

“The impact was the children were, in a practical and active way, able to learn about the nature, the outdoors and sustainability.”
