CHILDREN at South Farnham School discovered their wild sides as part of Surrey Wildlife Trust 30 Days Wild challenge.

The challenge encouraged people to ‘do something wild’ every single day in June, reconnecting with the natural world and helping wildlife wherever they live, work and play.

Nearly 7,000 people in Surrey signed up – including more than 5,000 school children.

At South Farnham, children had a nature-themed assembly, made homes for wildlife and talked about green issues - all with the help of their a new class mascot, a cuddly badger.

Year four pupil Abi said: “30 Days Wild was great fun - I loved learning about our local environment and coming up with ideas to help protect endangered species.

“The nature assembly was very interesting - especially seeing things from the natural world that we don’t normally get the chance to see up close, such as deer antlers.”
