Wildlife Trust HIWWT
In the academic year 2021/2, Wicor entered a partnership with the HIWWT and this continues into the 23-24 academic year. This has enabled us to use the expertise of Trust staff and volunteers in helping to teach the children about natural history. The Trust focusses its time with different classes each year but assists more widely by creating teaching resources and holding Wicor-only open days on its reserves. In return, the school has chosen the Trust as its charity for fund-rising efforts.
In June 2023, Y1 worked with HIWWT to set up a moth trap and record what we found on irecord (https://irecord.org.uk/). This work contributes to the national database once approved. See what we found below:
Wicor Host's Gardening Training
On 25th April 2023, Wicor hosted bookable training sessions for others working in a school setting. The day course taught skills and knowledge on simple garden techniques and understanding how wildlife gardening can be achieved in school. The training was provided by HIWWT.
