Old Buckenham Country Park Trip
Otter Class visited Old Buckenham Country Park today to take part in some activities run by Allan from Talk:Wildlife. Children had a go at pond dipping and caught some fabulous pond life including snail eggs, toad tadpoles and (very) small fish. They also had a nature walk and used sweeping nets and bug catchers to find some insects. As a class we found lots of different bugs including a bee, spiders, beetles and a crane fly. It was great to be able to look closely at these insects and then children released them back into the wild. We also met Edith the pig and Gabby and Glenda the goats. After lunch, children had the opportunity to sketch some insects in resin and also a huge set of antlers, which they also had a turn at holding! Otter class were superbly behaved all day and should be very proud of themselves!
