Trinity Academy Richmond

Friday, June 24th 2022

Pupils from Trinity Academy in Richmond enjoyed a day out at Foxglove on Monday. Pond dipping was one of the activities carried out in the hot summer sunshine.

Stickleback, Water boatmen, caddis fly larvae and Toad tadpoles were the main animals to be found lurking beneath the water surface along with this very large pond snail!

The dry sunny conditions were pefect for some sweep netting on the wildflower meadow (part of the minibeast safari). Grass bugs, grasshoppers and spiders were discovered amongst the tall grasses and flowers.

The topic for the day was 'food chains' and there was plenty of opportunity to discuss this throughout the day. 

Thank you to the staff and pupils, it was a pleasure to spend some time with you!
