Folly Farm Day 1

Y4 have had a fantastic first day at Folly Farm. We have been up into the woodland, exploring the habitat on the hunt for mini-beasts. The children used reference materials to identify their finds, sharing key facts with the rest of the group. The weather was glorious, so we sat on the hillside to enjoy our lunch. 
Next stop was the Folly Farm pond, home to a myriad of creatures. The children had great fun pond dipping, finding all sorts of animals and again, using reference materials to identify them. They even found baby great crested newts and adult palmate newts!

The day isn't over yet and this evening we are off badger watching. Hopefully, we can all be very quiet and the badgers decide to come out to play!
