On Friday 24th May Kennick Class enjoyed their first visit this term to Nature School. It was a lovely sunny day and we had so much fun! We made our own Nature School badge. We had to think of an animal that started with the same letter as our name and then draw a careful picture of it, making sure we used the correct colours.
We were really lucky and got to see some bird ringing, which was really fascinating. We loved seeing the birds up close and some of us were lucky enough to handle the birds before we released them. We learnt how the birds are weighed and measured and also the names of the birds ( some of which we have seen in our gardens).
The children worked really well as part of a team to build a den and loved using the mud kitchen to create lots of yummy sounding treats ( although we didn't eat them!) It was lovely to see the children immersed in imaginative role play.
We got to learn lots about bats as we had a talk from Helen who told us all about the bats that are found in this country and how we can encourage bats to visit our gardens. The children learnt all about the horseshoe bat which has habitats local to Bovey Tracey.
We had an amazing morning but we were all really tired in the afternoon! We can't wait for next session.
