At Seaton Primary, we have been discovering about Bats. We have enjoyed a visit from a representative from The Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat project and are excited to learn that we live in one of the very few places in the country that have a roost of these bats.

We will be learning about these bats and looking to find different ways to help bats thrive in our part of Devon. Check this page for more information as this project progresses.

All the pupils have been working very hard on different bat activities and we were very pleased to have a visit from Helen Parr from the Devon Bat Project to give us the Bat Buddy Bronze award. We are very happy for this and look forward to continuing to support this project and work towards the silver award.

Pupils in Key Stage 2 were invited to apply for the role of AmBATsador for our school. These pupils will help our school become bat friendly and help keep us think about the bats that live around us and ways that we can help the Greater Horseshoe Bat in particular. Any pupils wishing to be considered for the role, please see Mr Lewis.

We were delighted to have a visit from Helen Parr from the Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Project. She explained to the whole school that we have an endangered species living in our area and that as a school and as families we can do things to help these bats thrive. Pupils in Year 2, 3, 4 and 5 worked with Helen outside learning about bats looking at their skeletons and even seeing their droppings! They also looked around the school grounds to investigate what insects could be found that would be good for the bats to eat. Pupils also worked in class to research bats and make bat related craft items.
This is part of our attempt to be a Bat Friendly school.
