Visit from Education Officer, Tom White, from the Kent Wildlife Trust

Posted: Oct 2, 2022 by: Tara (Tara) on: Forest Blog

Still buzzing from winning GOLD in the Kent Wildlife Awards, it was an absolute honour to welcome Tom White, Education Officer with Kent Wildlife Trust.   

Earthclass, Eco Club and Garden Gang were all there answering questions and were filmed for a short video that will be featured on their website as well as an article in the winter edition of the magazine.

Listening to the children speak so passionately about the environment and what they are doing here at Sutton Valence Primary School gave me goose bumps.

It was wonderful to share with Tom what we are doing with regards to protecting wildlife, engaging with nature as well improving our environmental sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint.

Really interesting listening to Tom and hear about what Kent Wildlife are doing with their wilding project involving the introduction of the three Bs: boar, bison and beavers.

In Eco Club this term we will be focusing on vocabulary and definitions, the first three being: sustainability, biodiversity and carbon footprint.

The children are designing the eco board to share this learning with the school.
