Today the sun shone on our class trip to Rosemoor to study minibeasts. We started the day with an introduction to minibeasts and ones we may find in both a woodland habitat and a pond habitat. We then went to explore the woodland area for minibeasts and used magnifiers to look at them closely.
We then moved to the ponds to look for pond life minibeasts. We used fishing nets, and white trays to collect a range of invertebrates. Then we stopped for lunch.
After lunch we walked through the woodland area on a scavenger hunt for a range of different things from a wavy edged leaf, to 3 different shades of green and a yellow petal. Once we had collected as many things as we could find, we stopped off in a flower garden to do some sketches of the different flowers we could see.
The children had a fantastic time at Rosemoor and learn a lot more about minibeasts and their distinguishing features. They coped really well in the sun and did some lovely sketches too.
