Year 4 had the best afternoon on their visit to Chetwynd Deer Park today. When we arrived, we dived straight into pond dipping where we found lots of tadpoles, a water boatman and even a newt! The hosts were very excited as no other school has ever found a newt before!
Next, they wet our appetites with a bug eating activity where we had the option of eating mealworms and crickets! They were surprisingly tasty and most of the children enjoyed…some even went back for seconds!
Finally, we went on a bug hunt around the deer park. We found lots of different insects including a rare beetle. One of the children also found a deer skull which was very exciting!
