What a brilliant adventure we had today! Wellies on and we set off from Whissendine, following the footpath signs from the Nook. We crossed stiles, squeezed past nettles and ducked under low branches, crossed over little streams and scrambled up and down hills. We passed a horse and sheep, identified different kinds of poo and enjoyed hiding under the tall crops. I think we found all the different plants on our identification sheet; cow parsley, clover, daisies, dandelions, brambles, nettles and many more.
The children were fantastic at spotting all kinds of different minibeasts, we saw dragonflies, beetles, butterflies, snails and bumblebees. When we got to the little wood, the children all had a go at pond dipping too and found an amazing amount of creatures in a very little stream! They were clever at finding minibeasts hiding under logs and stones in the wood. Centipedes, worms, millipedes, beetles and lots of woodlice, all carefully returned to their homes.
We were so impressed by your resilience Class 1, your little legs walked a long way and you kept on smiling despite a few bumps, scratches and stings. A big thank you to our parent helpers, we couldn't have done it without you and we really appreciate your help.
