The Reception children had a wonderful visit to Eltham Environment Centre on Wednesday. The weather was marvellous and the children were very excited to go on their first coach trip together. At Eltham we searched for minibeasts – first we looked in the pond. They had great fun fishing around with their nets. They examined their catch carefully, before returning the little creatures back to the pond. They then found lots of creatures under logs and stones. In the afternoon the children had a walk past the beehives and learned about how the bees stick out their tongues to collect the nectar from the flowers and how they also collect pollen and spread it from flower to flower. We then went into the woods where they did a little art project using natural materials to make minibeasts. What a fabulous day they had in the sunshine! Click on the picture to make it bigger.
