Eco Safari Description

Season of the visit: Spring

We left our classroom and headed for the school garden. There we observed many minibeasts such as ants, bees, snails and woodlice hiding under a rock. From there we explored the hedges around the school where we saw a caterpillar, beetles as well as plants like daisies and cleavers . We checked out the new vegetable garden and managed to spot a wren.

We were well-prepared for our eco safari by studying our targets beforehand in class. We now know a lot more about plants like daisies and sticklebacks. We collected daisies that were all white and ones that had pink tips on their ray florets.

tips

Feeding our urban birds during the winter helps these birds to survive and also allows us to see these wonderful creatures up close.
