Schoolchildren go wild

Several school groups have been visiting Ely Wildspace over the past few weeks as part of our educational programme. On 13 June two year 3 classes from Ely St John’s joined Liz Hunter for environmental art activities, and on 25 and 27 June Liz ,Ben Green Pam Bullivant and Helen Moore spent the mornings introducing year 4 children to some of the wonderful wildlife that lives on their doorstep. Thanks to Mrs Geeson, Ms Blakeman, Mrs Wills, Mr Firth and the children at ESJ for all their enthusiasm. Do contact Ely Wildspace ( if you would like to arrange a visit to the Wildspace for your school.
