On Wednesday we visited New Romney’s nature reserve as part of our topic flowers and insects. We had a long walk down the nature reserve and were really thankful for the parents and staff that helped to keep us safe on the way.
We were met by our guides for the day, they ran activities for us in both the Warren and in the Community Garden.
The children were able to collect bugs using a net, and then observe them closely in the magnified pots. We went on a bug hunt, flower trail and had to collect all kinds of things for our scavenger hunt! We also learnt about the parts of a flower and how it grows from a seed. We had to be really quiet when were inspecting which insects came to visit the flowers in the sunshine!
When back at school last week we then looked at all of our fabulous new bug houses and hotels to see if we had the same bugs back at school! – There were many, many woodlice, but not as many exciting spiders.
Have a look at our day in pictures, as well as our bughouses made my our amazing children and parents. We are really thankful for your support and hard work 🙂
