An interesting discovery!

Morning!

I thought it would be nice to share some photographs of a very interesting discovery made by Mia, Daisy and Evie.

Hiding in one of the towers of tyres, they found a nest with 4 little baby birds tucked inside. With the school being quieter than normal, the mummy bird obviously thought it would the perfect place for her nest.

Yesterday, we watched as the mummy bird bought worms back to the nest, for her babies to eat.

Hopefully we won’t disturb the babies when we return to school. If any budding bird watchers can identify what birds they are, send me an email!

BEAM emotional wellbeing service – Changes to services during lock-down.

 

BEAM are determined to continue to offer support to young people across Shropshire and Telford, and are offering phone support while the lockdown continues.

This is open to young people who have visited Beam before, as well as any who would like to get some support who haven’t attended the face to face service. We recognise that for some of the younger children, phone-based support may not be appropriate.  The team are able to offer support and resources to parents and carers to help them to support their children.

Please see the attached documents if you feel you or your child would benefit from accessing the service.
