I am the Deputy Head of Longfields primary school in Bicester. There are 240 pupils on roll. As part of our ECO week we asked Ann Jordan from the Great Bustard Group to give a talk on the re-introduction project. This linked with other work on re-introduction projects, endangered species and habitats.
We found the talk particularly interesting because the children had been learning about endangered species and habitats during ECO week and had looked at how Red Kites had been re-introduced near to our school.
We were also interested to learn how Great Bustards used to live on the downs in South Oxfordshire.
Following the talk the children were keen to ask questions and drew some pictures of Bustards. It was a very interesting talk which fitted in perfectly with the ECO week themes.
