Year 5 enjoyed a busy day at Hickling Broad on Thursday 17th May. This was to support our local area geography studies this half term, as well as enhance our science topic next half term, on animal lifecycles.
We were allowed to catch butterflies and insects with butterfly nets, in various woodland locations, thinking carefully about their suitability to their habitats, and we tried to identify them. We visited a variety of habitats and looked for evidence of wildlife.
The picnic lunch on the lawn in the sunshine was very enjoyable and we had a peaceful and relaxing time sketching in the bird hide, linked to our unit on perspective drawing.
