On Wednesday 4th May, Year 2 visited Fairburn Ings and had a fantastic time. The weather was glorious which made exploring micro habitats even more fun!
We investigated the micro habitat of ponds as our main focus. We had great fun pond dipping and then identifying each creature. We found out lots of facts about the creatures too including what they liked eating. Herbivore, carnivore, omnivore of detritivore?
We also learnt about life on top of the water. We fed the ducks with special food and many of us were surprised to learn that we shouldn’t be feeding them bread!
The children were fantastic ambassadors for our school, all demonstrated wonderful manners and showed lots of respect for the beautiful environment at the Ings.
