Minibeast Walk

 This afternoon, we enjoyed a marvellous minibeast hunt around the school field which was a fantastic end to this half term.

Here we are all ready to go!


The children were fascinated with the holes in the hedge at the bottom of the field.

"what's in there?" asked Jamie

"I can see something" said Finley

"it's only small" Sequoia commented


It was all very exciting!


We found a bigger hole a little further along

"this one is bigger" said Jamie


We wondered what might be in the hole.....were there minibeasts?  Jodie and Jude had a look but we can confirm that there was nothing exciting.




As we walked along the hedgerow, we saw bees on the blossom.


The children were excited to spot another hole between trees on the opposite side of the field.

"that's a big one" said Iwo


We all decided to walk to the opposite side of the field to investigate


As we approached the hole leading in to part of the Forest School area, we spotted lots of dandelions.  Some of the children talked about how they blow the dandelions at home.


We had lots of fun counting how many puffs it took to blow all of the seeds from the dandelions.


Finley spotted a slug on one of the dandelions......very observant!


Lots of wonderful maths language:

"I've got a long one"

"Mine's only small"

"Look at this tall one"

"I'm going to do big blows.  One, two, three, four.  All gone."





We found a may bug on a leaf which Fay identified.  The children were all keen to have a look.


It then flew off, back into the hedge.

"He's gone back home"  said Beth.




We found a log which had some slugs, a spider and some woodlouse hiding underneath.  The children also noticed ants crawling along it.


We then found a hole which the children used as a boat.  We sand 'Row, Row, Row Your Boat' whilst using large logs as oars.


On the pond, we spotted some pond skaters.


Our last discovery were woodlice on a log.


What a fantastic ending to our focus on minibeasts.  


Have a lovely half term - Preschool sessions resume on Monday 3rd June.
