Arkengarthdale Primary School Visit

Thursday, June 12th 2014

Children from Class 1 at Arkengarthdale Primary School visited the reserve today for a fun filled day of nature activities. During the morning the class spent time with Adam and Jackie pond dipping, where we saw dragonfly larvae predating tadpoles and learnt about caddisfly larvae and how they build their cases to protect themselves from predation. After a short break we went out on a Minibeast Safari where we learnt more about camouflage and other adaptations animals have to keep themselves safe before a quick play in the dams.

After lunch Elizabeth took a walk looking at the different habitats along Risedale Beck and many of the plants and animals that can be found there.

We hope you all enjoyed your visit and will be back soon with your families to explore more of the reserve!

Also we have been sent a link to Middleham Primary School's blog page where they have written about their visit here yesterday and shared a few photos.
