A School Day Out

Friday, June 23rd 2017

Today Middleham C of E Primary School visited Foxglove. We initially thought we might be thwarted by the Royal Lancers Parade on the parade square, which was looking like it would clash with the arrival of the 38 primary school children and their teachers. However, the parade was complete by the time the school group arrived and the day went to plan. The children enjoyed a range of activities. They were divided into mixed-age groups which enabled the older ones to help the younger ones.

Some started with pond dipping.

Others enjoyed a habitat walk.

The remainder went minibeast hunting, to see what they could find under the logs, in the trees and out on the wildflower meadow.

Rotating through all the activities meant everyone got the chance to try out every task.

Meanwhile, thanks go to those working behind the scenes- Colin who filled the bird feeders ready for the weekend and those working on the various preparations for our Foxglove 25 anniversary celebrations on 15th and 16th July.
