Easter Holiday Activity Day

Wednesday, April 16th 2014

Today we held an Easter Holiday Activity event at Foxglove.

First we set off to the outdoor classroom for a bug hunt, we found lots of slugs and worms but the highlights were a lovely Ground Beetle and some millipedes which we were able to look at through the magnifying glasses and see all their legs moving.

 

After we'd uncovered all the mini-beasts and looked at the different types of places they like to hide in we set off on a nature trail to see what wildlife we could find around the reserve. Brian showed us a tiny shield bug which was on the bridge and we listened very carefully to the Chiffchaff singing.

Before lunch the children donned their wellies and had a look at the dam. They tried to make the water go fast, slow, a long way through the dam and to get it as deep as possible...

...the dam worked so well that some of the wellies just weren't tall enough!

After lunch we made our own bug hotels, with material which had been collected on our earlier walk, and bird feeders which the children took home to put in their gardens.

Thank you to Izaak, Luke, Daniel, Dean and Amber for coming to our event and to Jackie for all her help.
