The children were very surprised when they were joined in the playground by a full sized red squirrel one Friday afternoon. All the children had the chance to learn about the work being done to protect the red squirrels in Cumbria and Class 3 children helped make some squirrel feeders. Everyone wore red on the day and donated money to Penrith Red Squirrel Group who were very impressed by the children’s enthusiasm and the range of questions they asked.
