Gatton Park Trip

On Thursday 11th May, Year 1 went to Gatton Park as part of their  science topic on Animals. We had a great day!

We started the day by listening to a story about some of the creatures that we might see on our minibeast hunt. 

Then we went into the woods and out into the fields and were taught how to use different equipment to find and study minibeasts. We identified what we had found on a sheet. 

We had lunch overlooking a beautiful lake. Then we had the opportunity to study and identify pond creatures before going down to the pond to try pond dipping for ourselves.
