Every now and then I am fortunate to work with some truly amazing children. Every now and then I am lucky enough to work with a fantastic class of children. Year 5 at Pengam Primary school were one of those special classes you come across. All the children were so engaged with my talks about conservation, pollution and plastics it really made an impact on me such was their enthusiasm. They were all very passionate when talking about the environment and especially sharing it with animals.

Today I spent the morning at one of my local Primary schools in Cwmbran, Torfaen. Greenmeadow Primary school is a fabulous school with around 200 pupils. I is a small community focused school with some outdoor space for the children to play. Mrs Tucker had invited me to her school to talk to her year 2 class and tell them about my project. This is a very special group of children who really enjoyed listening to me and of course it was a change from the everyday curriculum. we talked about conservation and what sort of nest boxes we could build to help out birds, hedgehogs, bats and dormice. I also donated 4 nest boxes to the school and as a class we managed to install them around the school grounds.
Well November is here and it seems that October has gone so fast that i did not notice. October was a reasonably warm month with no frost whatsoever. The difference in temperature from October to November became very apparent with frost and a cold Easterly wind. The easterly winds have been shedding the trees of their remaining leaves although the big strong mature trees are holding on to some of their leaves.
Nothing has changed with regard my project work. I am still fortunate to have Dominic helping out and covering all aspects of est box building like using my power tool to cut the materials and finally painting them to a finished product and ready for installation.
