Year 4 fortuitously managed to dodge the rain on their trip to Walltown Country Park and The Sill Visitor Centre in Northumberland. To enhance their learning in Science, the children explored a variety of habitats with activities including pond dipping, minibeast hunting and searching for different types of lichen on trees. After a packed lunch at the Sill, there was time to explore the exhibits in the museum before the coach journey back to school.
Quinn said, “It was a really good trip. My favourite activity was the pond dipping.”
Ashante enjoyed using a net to catch minibeasts in the long grass.
Heidi thought it was a really interesting trip because she learnt about different types of lichen and woodlice.
Interesting Fact: Did you know, there are at least 24 different types of woodlice, including a pink woodlouse?
