On Thursday 13th June Class Two went to Lee Valley Park to learn all about habitats. The rangers lead the sessions and the day included some pond dipping in the river, mini beast hunting and various opportunities to identify creatures and learn about how they survive. The children really enjoyed the pond dipping and used large nets to find pond creatures. The creatures were put into a tray of water and we identified them and sorted them according to different criteria  e.g crustacean, insect or invertebrate. If you ask the children of course they will say that lunch was the best part of the day but in actual fact the children enjoyed all aspects of the day and were able to use what they had learnt to greater effect back at school in the follow up tasks.
