Slapton Residential – Wednesday
We have spent today in the ancient woodlands in Slapton. They are over 100 years old and are currently managed by the Field Studies Council. We hunted for minibeasts and learnt about food chains and how the smallest creatures are essential to life on our planet. For lunch we made bread and cooked it over a fire that we made ourselves – it was very tasty!
In the afternoon we dipped the pond and found some amazing pond creatures, including newts and dragonfly larvae. We made some clay models of the creatures that we have been learning about on our residential trip – we’ll bring these back to school on Friday.
Slapton Residential – Thursday
What a fantastic day! In the morning we walked around the Slapton nature reserve. We dipped for minibeasts in the lake and took wax rubbings of woodland images before going to the beach for the afternoon. We liked building shelters and best of all going to the ice cream shop at the end of the day! We are looking forward to the last night disco tonight and hope to be back at school by 2pm tomorrow (Friday 10th July).
