Pupils from Warfield CE Primary School in Bracknell Forest were treated to a lesson in protecting their local environment in July.
They enjoyed a day of eco-workshops and outdoor activities led by Sussex Green Living, a local green network which aims to "empower and inspire people to make more sustainable choices".
The children took part in an eco-theory lesson and a practical workshop, where they learnt how to make bird feeders and butterfly nesting boxes out of recycled plastics and Tetrapacks. Finally, they planted sunflowers, which as well as providing a bird food source, will now also act as a bright addition to the school's grounds.
Paul Dibley, Year 3 teacher at Warfield Primary, said: "It is crucial to teach children about the importance of nature and our environmental impacts. The activities organised by Berkeley were both informative and engaging and I know that all of the children learnt a great deal throughout the day."
Benjamin Ivey, Director of Sales and Marketing at Berkeley Homes (Oxford and Chiltern), said: "We are keen to promote sustainability and the importance of protecting and cultivating local eco-systems. We are happy to have been able to arrange this activity for Warfield Primary and hope they continue to learn about ways to look after the environment."
Woodhurst Park has been designed to complement the surrounding Berkshire countryside. This growing community includes community gardens, a river cut, ponds and a landscaped Greenway path. These features are designed to contribute towards the sense of rural tranquillity as well as encourage and cultivate biodiversity.
