Pupils from Crossroads primary school struck gold when they took part in the RSPB Challenge awards.

The youngsters have been working on the scheme since January and had to complete a number of tasks to receive the honour.

The initiative is aimed at allowing children to experience nature in their local environment and identify things they can do to enhance the area for animals.

After completing 18 activities to help nature and experience it, they received their RSPB Gold award.

The activities they undertook included creating a biodiversity plan for the school grounds, learning about composting and building a hedgehog house.
