Year 2 visited Martin Mere today to find out more about different habitats. When the children arrived they explored pond habitats in the raised pond beds and then walked up to Plum wood to find out all about woodland habitats. It was great to see the children exploring the different habitats and finding different animals to look at. Bobby even discovered a toad in the woods, which got lots of gasps! After lunch the children let off some steam in the play area and then went off on an hour walk around the wetland paths. During their exploration of the Mere the children experienced the “Wild Walk”, stepping stones and Weird but Wonderful bird zone. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were a credit to the school.
