This afternoon, P7 had a very enjoyable trip to Almondell Country Park. We were very lucky to have a dry afternoon to engage in our different activities. Firstly, we created our own forest pictures using found objects on the forest floor and labelled them. We were surprised to discover how different our pictures were given that we all had the same materials and instructions. Afterwards, we walked down to the river where we heard all about the creatures which make the river their habitat, including a family of otters. We had to use the knowledge that we had gained to create Venn diagrams showing which wildlife and living plants and trees used the river, woodland and grassland for their homes. Then finally, we enjoyed a high spirited game of Food, Shelter, Habitat tig which was great fun – until the predators were unleashed! The afternoon was a great success and hopefully the children will be inspired to take their families/carers on a walk through the park very soon.
