Year 3 and 4 nature walk in Swedenborg gardens

The Year 3 & 4  took part in a nature walk in Swedenborg Gardens with a local organisation (Nature and US). The children had a short talk with the leaders and then began their walk. They discovered various insects such as ladybirds, spiders and worms. They found out that all male spiders die in the winter but most females survive! They also observed various plants such as goose grass and dandelions. The children also used magnifying glasses to examine the small hairs on the leaves.  They were excited to see wild lettuce and wild carrots, spotted different birds and learnt which nest belong to which bird.  Overall, the trip was a great success and the children were able to make links  with their science topic.
