Mini beasts and their habitats

On Monday Peregrines were visited by Tamsin, from Stroud Valleys Wildlife Trust. Tamsin talked about the creatures that might be found around the school grounds, before heading out onto the field to hunt for habitats. The children used a spoon to coax minibeasts into plastic pots, and we then sorted creatures in to different categories, according to how many legs they had. Pupils found wood lice, snails, beetles, spiders, slugs and caterpillars. We discussed why they might prefer the different types of habitat around the school, before returning them all to where they had been found. Thankyou to Tamsin for a very interesting and enjoyable afternoon of Science.
