Fledging Visits the Year 2 Hub

by Liz Riggir

Over the last two weeks we have been listening to cheeping coming from a nest above our door. On Wednesday morning some of our Year 2's spotted a wee fledgling sitting in our strawberry plants. The whole Hub was super excited. We researched online and found out it is a sparrow. We talked about how we can help the fledgling survive. Everyone was very careful not to get too close or be noisy near it.
