Learning to be Earthkeepers

LOOKING after the planet is a high priority at one Portishead school.

Year six pupils from High Down Junior School recently spent two days at the Avon Wildlife Trust Folly Farm Nature Reserve.

The 90 children took part in a hands-on programme of activities training them to become Earthkeepers.

The children learnt how all living things on earth are connected in a web of life.

Now back at school they are finding practical ways to make their school and homes a greener place.
