Poetry and Ponds

Monday, June 13th 2016

For most of the day the rain held off, just giving the odd drizzle to keep things damp and ideal for the slugs to roam on the paths . Today was also a school visit day from Le Cateau Primary School.

We did the usual habitat walk but this time with a bias toward flowers, then the usual pond dipping

Followed by a poetry activity where we went out and observed nature and described with adjectives the various ‘life’ on the reserve.
Although the weather was not the best for butterflies we were able to examine the slugs, and other bugs that were down at the outdoor classroom.

This Spectacled Moth was rescued by Glennis in a spider web by one of the hides, you can see why it is named as it is!


Thank you to Jenny and Elizabeth for assisting and passing on their specialised knowledge to the children.
