PUPILS at Clevedon’s Mary Elton Primary School have been building bird boxes out of recycled materials as part of a DT project.
In September, headteacher Owen James launched the autumn craft project to provide birds around the school with winter sustenance.
This was after he found a suggestion in a magazine to make bird feeders.
He said: “The children have taken a simple idea using recycled materials and made it really creative.
“There should be some chunky-looking birds around Clevedon this winter.”
