Lots of Learning

Monday, October 5th 2015

On Friday and again today we have been continuing the educational activities at Foxglove. On Friday we had Kellbank School come on a visit. We split into three groups to complete activities around the reserve. The first group went on a discovery walk around Foxglove identifying the flora and fauna that is around at this time of year.

The second group learnt about the bird ringing that takes place at Foxglove, were introduced to our bees and then headed out to complete some natural art in the woodland.

The third group stayed inside and completed a number of craft activities based on the animals that you find here at Foxglove.


Today we had some children from Hipswell Primary school come to the reserve. They split into two groups, the first group completing an arts and crafts activity workshop in the indoor classroom.

Unfortunately we weren’t blessed with good weather but the second group braved the elements for a short walk around the reserve learning about autumn.  We had enjoyable days with both schools and hope that they enjoyed their visits and will come again in the future.

We would like to thank our band of volunteers who helped us with these visits; we couldn’t do it without you.
