These creatures were all captured within the school grounds, in an area that is bordered by woodland. The school new they had a range of animals visiting because of the the tracks and evidence left. This footage was shown in assembly and put on the school website and was a wonderful way of proving to the pupils that there was a whole new world in their grounds, that came alive when they went home.
Footage such as this is a wonderful stimulusfor writing. All genres of writing within the Literacy Strateg can be achieved through using a stimulus such as this.
I feel there is much potential for use of Bushnells within the school curriculum, possibly on a loan basis, as many schools would be unable to afford the kit themselves.
