Carnagill Primary School

Wednesday, May 19th 2021

A second class from local Carnagill Primary School visited the reserve today. They were excellent nature detectives and had a great day out!

After a habitat walk, they did some pond dipping in the scrapes where they caught lots of sticklebacks and toad tadpoles. At the Outdoor Classroom, they learned about camouflage, predators and prey and searched for some invertebrates.

It was a bit chilly so the main finds were snails, spiders, beetles and worms.

Logs from the recent Ash tree works made great tabletops to work on!

Magnifying glasses were used to have a closer look at some of the creatures.

No school trip to the reserve would be complete without a quick splash in the dams!

On the way back to the Field Centre there was an attempt to walk like a giant centipede!

Thank you to all of the staff and pupils from the school who visited Foxglove this week, we hope that you will come back to see us again soon.
