A visit from The Wildlife Trust

We took part in a minibeast hunt and made bug hotels!

Today the children of Key Stage 1 and EYFS  took part in a session with Mark from The Wildlife Trust.  We used magnifying lenses to observe creatures that we had found. When we put some of the bugs into a special pot to observe them they looked enormous underneath the magnifier!   We also did a 'tree shake'.  This is where we placed a piece of cloth underneath a tree to catch any bugs as the branches were shaken. Afterwards we made small 'minibeast hotels' to create safe habitats for bugs to live.
