Thursday 19th May 2011 – ‘Let’s Go Exploring’ Club is Launched

Filed under: Let's Go Exploring @ 3:49 pm

Mrs Milne’s ‘Let’s Go Exploring’ Club started today.  This club’s members have been personally invited with the aim to further their curiosity about the outdoors and provide them with memorable and fun ‘discovery’ experiences in the locality.

Today, we explored the school grounds, finding mini-beasts and examining them under magnifying glasses.  Amongst the dry-stone walling and along the Nature Trail we found:

  • Woodlice (brown and black)
  • Ants
  • Ladybirds
  • Shield beetles
  • Earthworms
  • Snails

Next, we headed to the back of the field behind the orchard to build mini-dens!  Using sticks, matted sheets of earth, leaves, grass and flowers, the teams naturally spilt into boys vs girls as Mr Wallace was kind enough to stay and join in with the club’s activities today.  The girl’s den was clearly the winner as it was sturdy and well-insulated.  The boys had better get practising in their free time, as they need to win when we make the real things after half term!
