Last Thursday we visited the Centre for Wildlife Gardening as part of our Mother Earth topic. We put on special high-visibility jackets for safety, and then got on the bus to the centre.
When we arrived, we sat and had lunch together. Then Andrew (a wildlife expert) taught us about plants, animals and their habitats.
Next, we went on a mini-beast hunt. Can you name some of the creatures we discovered?
Finally, we learnt about how bats communicate using echolocation by playing the ‘bats and moth’ game.
– A group of frogs is called an army.
– The smallest bird in England is called a goldcrest.
– Stag beetle larvae live for 6 years, but adult stag beetles only live for a few weeks.
– Female newts lay hundreds of eggs, but can only lay one at a time.
