Edith Weston Primary School pupils build homes for bats
YOUNGSTERS at Edith Weston Primary School are on the lookout for their very own winged creatures.
Year 1 pupils have made nine bat boxes, with the help of staff at Carillion Construction, which have been put up around the school to see whether bats are common visitors.
The boxes have been placed on trees and walls in the school grounds after rumours of bat sightings.
Headteacher Margaret Lishman said the children thoroughly enjoyed making the boxes and thanked staff at Carillion Construction.
She said: “We think there are bats but we’re not sure because we’re not here when they would be flying at dusk or night.
“The children thoroughly enjoyed making the boxes and learning about bats with the staff and we’re very grateful for their help.
“The pupils are now eager to see if there is any evidence of the creatures in the boxes.”
