A school’s home-grown crops now have a number of watchful eyes looking out for them.
Year 3 pupils at Oakley Vale Primary School in Corby have been creating scarecrows to display at the school’s allotment.
Teaching assistant Mandy Street said: “For their Easter homework project the Year 3 children had to make a scarecrow which met the specific criteria given by the teachers.
“It had to be made out of recycled material, it had to be waterproof and it had to have bird-scaring features.
“The topic for the term is ‘from field to fork’, and the children will be growing their own crops and having a garden cafe.
“It takes in all of the curriculum and the children are really enjoying it.”
