Our visit to Old Moor!

On the coach.
Our welcome!
Before we started.
We listened before we went on our minibeast hunt.
A very excited boy!
We were taught how to pond dip for minibeasts.
Very carefully we used the nets to dip for minibeasts.
It was a great way to find minibeasts in the pond.
Look what we found!!!
We had to look carefully.
We found some water beetles!
We found some dragonfly nymphs!
What else can we see?
There are lots in here.
Gosh they are everywhere in the pond.
We had to try and identify the minibeasts using a chart with pictures on it.
Here are a few tiny creatures!
Here are some more!!!
Lunchtime! We had a picnic for our lunch.
Minibeast hunting in the forest in the afternoon-we listened to what we had to do first.
Then we were shown how to sieve for the minibeasts.
Our turn to explore!
Sieving for minibeasts!
What have we found?
Pond viewing-we saw snails, pond skaters and a stickleback!
We found a cocoon, it was hard and spiky and black!

We made some of our favourite minibeasts using some natural resources. This was a dragonfly nymph!
Some of use were very sleepy coming home! What an eventful day!
