Squirrels trip to Anton Lakes

On Monday 25th May we went to Anton Lakes to explore the water life. We were met by Boycie and Charlotte who explained to the children what we were going to do and how to be safe near the water. The children were split into groups of 3, one was using the net to catch insects and the other two were at the tray sorting the pond life into groups. The children would swap around and have many goes searching in the lakes. Then the children had an opportunity to draw the creatures they had found. Finally Charlotte and Boycie went through the insects with a special camera which was projected on to the screen. We saw a snails heart beat! We looked closely at a dragon fly and discovered how they can swim so well.                                     
The children were extremely well behaved, loved learning outside and particularly enjoyed the hands on activities provided by the education team.
A wonderful afternoon in the sun shine
