About The Brigg Infant School

Our school is situated in the large village of South Normanton in Derbyshire. We have around 160 children ranging from Reception children aged 4-5, Year 1 aged 5-6 and Year 2 aged 6-7. We have two classes for each year group.
We regularly follow the progress of the Derby Cathedral peregrines through their webcams and have often had some of our work displayed on their website - www.derbyperegrines.blogspot.co.uk
We also have our own birdcam in a small nest box attached to our school. The children enjoy watching the webcam in school and at home through the internet. Despite our small school grounds we have been lucky to have had birds nesting in our box for the last few years. We have a wildlife blog where the children are able to post comments - http://www.reachwildlife.com/brigg-infant/
We have gained an International Schools Award and are proud of our links with schools in France and Sri Lanka. We are always keen to develop these links further with other schools around the world.

What we would like to achieve

We would love to learn more about ospreys and their migration route, as well as learning about their wintering quarters and how that differs from the UK. We enjoy developing links with other schools around the world and are keen to expand on these through sharing work, ideas, pictures and developing projects together.

About our local Ospreys

Our school is located just a few miles away from Ogston reservoir in Derbyshire. Ospreys regularly pass through Ogston on their migration routes in the Autumn and Springtime, somtimes stopping to catch a fish or two. Although we have never seen an osprey fly over our school!
Carsington Water is further away at around 19 miles, and also has ospreys passing through. At Carsington two osprey platforms have been built to try and encourage the birds to stay and breed there. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for that to happen!
