Sandon pupil, Leo Kerby-Kayne (8 years old) has been awarded a Blue Peter badge.
During lockdown, Leo made a bird feeder using waste items that were due to be recycled.
Leo’s mum Sam wrote into Blue Peter explaining what Leo had made. After his first day back at school, Leo came home to find that he had been awarded a Blue Peter badge.
Leo has autism and struggles with communication.
Mum, Sam, said:
“Leo was so proud of himself for making the bird house feeder that, in his excitement, he said ‘bird house’ and ‘the tree’.”
In the accompanying letter Blue Peter wrote:
“We think the bird feeder that you have made is so good that we’re awarding you a Green Blue Peter Badge which is especially for Blue Peter viewers who care about the environment and nature.”
We are all super proud of Leo at Sandon School, well done!
