Coming to the end of the Summer Term we invited 30 Year 5 students up to the College from across the local primary schools to take part in our creative ecology session on mini-beasts. Students first learnt how to identify any mini beasts they might find. They then got the opportunity to collect and view some of the mini beasts by taking soil samples, using sweep nets and collecting from the tree canopy.
In the afternoon session they built a variety of habitats to encourage more mini beasts including insect houses, earwig flats, ladybird hotels, rock piles and wood piles.
Well done to all the year 5 students who worked fantastically on their project for the day. Come back next year to see what’s living there!
