Monday 3rd of June 2019 6D went on a fabulous trip around Lytchett Bay Heath. We all found it very interesting and we enjoyed seeing all the local wildlife around us. The two remaining year six classes (6C and 6L) visited the Heath later that week.
As soon as we arrived there we had a safety talk with a lady named Sarah, from the Urban Wild Life Partnership. She took us around the Heath where we discovered many new and interesting things.
Our first activity was mini - beasting for which we had to go in groups of four. In our group we found a grass hopper and a huge spider (eek!) The other groups were making out that it was a TARANTULA!!! Some of the additional creatures we found were; spiders, dragonflies, beetles and ladybirds.
Following this the next activity was collecting samples from trees and plants. Some of the plants and trees we looked at were birch, and heather and many more
In conclusion, we enjoyed all of the learning and explaining activities with Sarah. Thank you to all of the Year 6 teachers for taking us there! by Demi and Livia
