Eco Safari Description

Season of the visit: Spring

Prior to embarking on our trail we learned about the various species of plants and animals we would be looking for. We explored the characteristics of the species and examined how we would identify them. We then decided that our safari route would be as follows; firstly we would go to the school garden followed by the grassy areas of the school.

Firstly we went to the school garden where we found lots of interesting mini beasts and plants. We found some cleavers and daisies. We also located some earwigs, woodlouse, ants, snails and ladybirds. As we were entering the garden we spotted a beautiful robin sitting in a tree. We then made our way to the grass area where we looked for more plant and animal species. Here we found cleavers, a shieldbug, some spiders, daisies, dandelions and some bluebells. We had a great time on our safari.

Did you know?

Woodlands have been used by people to survive for a long time. They can supply us with food, fuel and building materials. In the past warriors used Alder trees to make shields and Yew trees were used to make bows.

tips

Pine Martens are great for keeping mice and rats at bay. They also have a fondness for jam sandwiches.
