The Year 2 children had a fantastic time on their trip today to The Rising Sun Country Park.
We began the day looking at different habitats including pond and woodland habitats. The children had the opportunity to take part in a pond dipping activity where they caught and identified lots of different living things. The children caught fish, diving beetles, nymphs, pond snails, water boatman and plenty of pond weed! We then took part in a natural art workshop where the children created pond creatures using only natural materials.
After lunch the children completed a mini beast hunt and identified and classified the mini beasts based on their number of legs. The children ended the day by creating mini beast hotels, some of which included hot tubs and cinemas. Those bugs were really living the life!
It was a pleasure to take the children out on their first school trip and their behaviour was perfect! Thank you again to all adults who came along to support us on the trip, it was very much appreciated.
