Years 3 and 4 spent a lovely day at Sheringham Park. The weather stayed fine and dry but rather cold though this did not dampen the children’s enthusiasm. Year 4 went bug hunting in the woods and then looked at the bugs under the microscope, identifying them and labelling them predator or prey. Viewing a slug under the microscope was rather fun!
Pond dipping was excellent. We found a variety of creatures such as Great Diving Beetles and Pond Skaters. The best find were several newts, especially exciting as we had been looking at pictures of them this week in our science lesson. We turned them over to reveal their speckled orange tummy. It was great to witness the children’s shrieks of excitement. My thanks goes to our parent helpers and Rob and his team at Sheringham Park for helping to make the day a success.
