Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust is situated at the heart of our village. We have built up a strong relationship with the centre in order to enhance the children’s learning and to create links within the community of Slimbridge. To find out more about Slimbridge WWT via their website click here.
As part of the WWT’s recent celebration of the 100th anniversary since Captain Scott’s journey to the South Pole, some of the children and parents from our school were involved in the filming of a video entitled ‘Inspiring Generations’.
We often visit Slimbridge WWT to see the different birds and animals first hand in their own habitats.
The experts at the WWT spend time teaching us and answering our questions – on a recent visit Class 3 spent time with the Managing Director of WWT who was kind enough to personally show them around Sir Peter Scott’s family home.
We even had the once in a lifetime opportunity to see the extremely rare ‘White Talied Plover’ up close on a recent trip.
Our relationship with the WWT gives the children fantastic opportunities that cannot be replicated, opening thier eyes to nature and conservation in a unique way.
