Exploring Forest and Woodland Habitats

This afternoon Class 2 explored the school forest looking for evidence of living things. We were super lucky to spot a squirrel running straight to the top of a tall tree as we entered the forest. We also spotted bird feathers, our badger set, small slugs, insects and on the way to the forest several mole hills.
We discussed food chains and the children found several fallen leaves that had been nibbled at, the children thought this was probably caterpillars eating them- for energy!
After our science work we collected several leaves and seeds which will become part of our special art project … watch our blog tomorrow!
