East Cowton School Visit

Monday, September 21st 2015

Today East Cowton Primary School visited Foxglove. Upon arrival the heavens opened and everyone got rather wet whilst walking through the reserve to the field centre. However, they were all well dressed with wellies and waterproofs so were soon ready to start activities.

The topic for the day was “Art in the Environment” One group headed off to the woodland to learn about changing seasons and create some woodland art masterpieces from items found on the woodland floor.

Another group went pond dipping to see what they could find lurking in the depths of the ponds.

The final group had a wildlife related art session, creating colourful butterflies for our wall collection and making arty string birds.

By the end of the day the sun was shining and despite the rain, everyone had a nice day out.
