As part of our Mother Earth topic, Reception went on an Educational Visit to the Centre for Wildlife Gardening. We had a great time scavenger hunting, searching for Minibeasts and pond dipping!
Sylvia showed us how to safely dip for pond life! We put the contents of our net into a white tray so we could look carefully at what we had caught. We knelt down as we leaned into the pond in order to stay safe! We found a Horse Leech!
Bug Hunting! We lifted up rocks and logs and dug with spoons to find creatures lurking in the ground! We put the creatures carefully into a magnifying pot so that we could look at them more closely. When we had finished observing them, we put them all back where we found them.
Here are some of the creatures we found:A Freshwater Shrimp
Thank you to all the parents who came along to help us out, we wouldn’t have been able to go without you!
