Yesterday, Maple class spent the afternoon outside investigating the different habitats in our school grounds. We spent a lot of time exploring the ditches, hedgerows and the forest trail around the edge of the school (much to the children's delight!) and discovered lots of mini beasts lurking in lots of different places. We talked about the different sorts of habitats and why some creatures liked dark and damp homes, while others liked to live in bright, leafy homes.
We even identified the different sorts of trees in our school grounds and looked at the differences between each tree. They were particularly excited to find a maple tree!
