DULVERTON Middle School pupils have once again been showing the benefits of their 'Exmoor Curriculum's' influence on their education.

Last year they made 70 bird boxes for the British Trust of Ornithology in Burridge Woods in Dulverton.

Year eight pupils have been observing the characteristics of British birds and painting them in their art lessons.

Elizabeth Johnstone, art teacher, said: “It is pleasing to see how the pupils are so inspired by their surroundings.

“Their creative spirit is seen across the curriculum.

“Our pupils are very much part of their community and the benefits of smaller classes are evident.”
