A Mixture

Friday, August 12th 2016

Today is a bit of a mixed bunch of photograph as there seems to have been a lot of different things going on. This morning we held a Food Web Fun children’s activity. The children played a game, making themselves into a human food web, involving a big tangle of bits of wool. Afterwards they did a food web treasure hunt around the reserve, looking at who eats who.

They finished the activity morning by creating their own food chain hanging models and looking at some of the creatures in the classroom.

Whilst out and about we found several tiny toads.

We also found some golden raspberries. These look quite different to the usual red ones, but I am told are equally as tasty!

The moorhens on the lake have another brood of chicks. They were moving quite fast, hence the slightly fuzzy photographs!

Our two cows Liquorice and Fern are still happily munching their way through some of the vegetation on the wetlands.

Being Dexters, they are very small, and surprisingly difficult to spot. The vegetation still seems to be higher than they are in many places!

The boys have had a wonderful time at Foxglove so far this summer. Every activity has felt well planned and meaningful. We have learnt lots of new fascinating things! The team is fantastic and have such a wealth of knowledge, you can tell you guys love what you do! We’re excited for more fun filled activities and exploring the reserve even more! A super find!
