Traditionally, a scarecrow is posted on cultivated ground to deter birds or other animals from eating or otherwise disturbing seeds, shoots, and fruit. The scarecrow of popular tradition is a mannequin stuffed with straw; free-hanging, often reflective parts movable by the wind are commonly attached to increase effectiveness. The Rowner Leader, Learner, Citizen, Scarecrows (you may have seen some at pick up today) were waiting for the Gosport in Bloom judges this afternoon. We had a slightly different ‘take’. The children loved making the scarecrows, gave them names and were able to tell the judge all about them. Henry the Scarecrow in Year 3 loved to read and the Year 6 Scarecrow, Christina, took part in a CoJos lesson. Our Year 4 Dance Live Scarecrow was named Mariella and the Year 5 Scarecrow was super busy in Forest School. Awesome job Team Rowner!
