Today Holly class went on a trip to Rutland Water. We learnt about different creatures and their habitats. We went pond dipping and looked carefully at the different creatures that we found using an identification sheet to name them. We then went minibeast hunting in the woodland, lifting logs and stones to find a vast array of minibeasts. The children enjoyed looking closely at the different creatures using the magnifying glasses. Again, we used identification sheets to find out the names of the creatures that we had collected. Finally, in the afternoon, we walked down to the bird hide and used binoculars to bird watch. Our teacher told us the names of the different birds and lots of interesting information about them.
Today Reception children visited Sharnford Garden Centre. Andrew, the owner, showed us around. We looked at a range of plants and Andrew told us all about them. He told us all what plants need to stay alive and healthy. He gave us lots of plants and an apple tree to take back to school and plant in our own outdoor area.
