The pupils at Browick Road Primary School had a lesson on local wildlife from the Ecology Consultancy, a group which is running a education programme offered to schools that are undergoing or located near to construction works.

Corrina Peachment, the school’s deputy headteacher, said: “The children found the ecology workshops really interesting.

“It was great for them to see their local area in a different light and they enjoyed learning about how different animals have adapted to their environments.”

Jon Riley, technical director at The Ecology Consultancy, said: “They (the workshops) help developers communicate with schools about the considerations for wildlife involved in construction and leave a lasting positive legacy of involvement with the local community.”
