At Dothill we are extremely privileged to be members of ‘The Junior Friends of Dothill Nature Reserve’. As well as learning about nature, with help from the adult Friends group, we also get involved in other exciting, practical activities.
We are proud to be the first and currently the only Junior Friends group in Telford.
As part of the Noah’s Ark project, every pupil at Dothill painted their own piece of slate showing the wildlife that we are very lucky to see in Dothill’s Nature Reserve. They then got to lay their piece of slate to produce an amazing collage to celebrate Telford Town’s 50th Anniversary. On Wednesday 17th October, Cllr Cindy Mason-Morris, the Mayor of Wellington, gave a speech to the year 5 children and revealed our amazing artwork. All the year 5 children gave a huge clap to show our appreciation to the Mayor and also to see a beautiful collage that represented each ‘Junior Friend of Dothill
We have been nominated and shortlisted for a ‘Pride of Telford’ award for our work with the Friends of Dothill Nature Reserve. The awards ceremony takes place on 29th November 2018. Keep your fingers crossed!
