This term we have started working on the Green Tree School Platinum Award in our Forest school sessions.
First we read 'First Day at Bug School' and got to know a few insects.
Then we had a go at matching woodland creatures and trying to name them, we also thought about which ones might live in our grounds.
Finally, we went on a bug hunt to see what we could find in the woods and the garden areas.
We found slugs, worms, woodlice, spiders, beetles (black ones and colourful ones!) and saw butterflies, moths and other tiny, flying bugs. We turned over logs, shook trees to see if anything flew out and dug in the soil.
We have gained 5 points towards our platinum award and only have one project left to do!
