GREEN-FINGERED pupils braved the wet weather to take part in a wildlife garden development session.

Staff and volunteers from Northumberland Wildlife Trust worked with Year 3 and 4 students at Belsay First School, who tirelessly cleared two overgrown sections of their school’s woodland.

They established a mini-beast area complete with log piles and a clearing area to be used for outdoor-learning activities and storytelling sessions.

As if that wasn’t enough, they then set about re-instating the linking path between the two areas with woodchip donated by Northumberland County Council in groups of 10 at a time.
