Collaboration between CEIP Príncipes de Asturias in Quijorna, Capacitación agraria in Villaviciosa de Odón and the University of Valladolid.

On the 30th of April we participated in an event at the Príncipes de Asturias School in Quijorna. We participated with 120 children of all ages. We took the games designed by the students of the University of Valladolid and the children played them and recreated them by designing their own games. We also received help from Miriam, Diego and Guille from Capacitación Agraria.

The river is everything, it is the riverbed, the riverbank, its vegetation and its inhabitants. If we remove the trees and make pavements on the banks, we are doing away with the river and the animals that live in it. We want real rivers!

On the 17th of March we participated in an event at the CEIP Príncipes de Asturias, in Quijorna. We took part in various workshops aimed at discovering our biodiversity: silhouettes of large birds of prey, learning to identify small birds and other observation games. We also had the help of Miriam and Diego, two volunteers from Capacitación agraria, who helped us and allowed us to try out the games they had designed.

The students have worked on the final part of the project by creating and presenting scientific posters on various topics related to Biological Control with raptors and biodiversity conservation in agricultural environments. They have relied on experimental practice, research, critical thinking, collaborative work, and the importance of their final presentation.

After learning more about the local agricultural steppe birds, their problems and how we can help them, it was time to pass on their knowledge to their classmates in other classes. To do this, these students, who are in their final year of school, were responsible for organising games and activities during the ‘Culture Week’.
