Art in the Environment

Wednesday, September 30th 2015

Today we had a visit from Kirkby Fleetham Primary School, the theme for their visit was ‘Art in the Environment’. We split into three groups to complete activities around the reserve. Some of us headed off to complete some natural art work in the woodland.

For the second activity we headed down to the scrapes to do some pond dipping.

We found lots of life in the ponds including Pond Skaters, Leeches, Snails, Damselfly Larva, Whirligig Beetles and lots of Sticklebacks.

The third activity took place in our indoor classroom where the children created art works of some of the animals that inhabit Foxglove.

Thanks to our helpers today, your input was greatly appreciated.
