A trip to the pond.....

As it was such a beautiful day, we decided to visit the pond today.  Children were very excited to see what was happening in the water.  After a short safety talk and demonstration of how to use our nets and trays carefully, children set about on their discoveries.  To our amazement, we found the pond is brimming with life!  We discovered so many interesting things living in the pond, from water snails and water fleas to dragonfly larvae and even some newts!  There was so much anticipation and excitement to check our nets each time they were brought out of the water.  Children demonstrated curiosity and great teamwork in collaborating and helping one another.

After our endeavours, it was time for snack back at the gathering circle.  Following a well-earned rest, children played imaginative games, hide and seek and were introduced to ‘log dog’ – a firm favourite play prop!
