Aysgarth School Visit

Monday, October 29th 2012

Children from class PP2 at Aysgarth School visited Foxglove to have a look at the reserve during the Autumn.  They were taken on a nature walk in the morning, ending in an natural art activity, creating pictures from whatever was found on the plantation floor.

This owl picture was inspired by the owl box hanging on a nearby tree.

The afternoon was spent learning about camouflage, other ways that prey avoids predators, before finishing off with a play in the dams.
